GONZALEZ DEL VALLE GONZALEZ, Zulema et al. Infección por el virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana tipo2: Presentación de 1 caso. Rev cubana med [online]. 2003, vol.42, n.6, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.

The case of a 69 year-old patient from the municipality of Centro Habana that was admitted at "Hermanos Ameijeiras" Hospital for presenting a clinical picture of fever, upper diarrheas and weight loss, is reported. The presence of lesions suggestive of oral candidiasis was proved on the physical examination. Accelerated erythrosedimentation, increase of lactic acid dehydrogenase and severe reduction of the total count of lymphocytes CD4+ were found in the complementary studies. The presence of antibodies against the HIV-2 was confirmed by serological study in 2 samples of blood taken on different dates. This case corresponds to the tenth diagnosis of HIV-2 infection made in Cuba, and it is of interest that in spite of the long period of incubation, it was made at an advanced stage of the infection due to the clinical suspicion of immunodeficiency and not as a result of previous screening studies.

Palabras clave : HIV-2 [pathogenicity]; HIV INFECTIONS.
