Resumen

NODA ALBELO, Amauri Lázaro; VIDAL TALLET, Lázaro Arturo; PEREZ LASTRE, Jorge Ernesto  y  CANETE VILLAFRANCA, Roberto. Clinical interpretation of the CD4 positive T lymphocytes count in HIV infection. Rev cubana med [online]. 2013, vol.52, n.2, pp.118-127. ISSN 0034-7523.

The main consequence of persistent replication of the human immunodeficiency virus is the gradual reduction of CD4 positive T lymphocytes, what eventually leads to the loss of immunological competence. The CD4 positive T lymphocytes count by means of flow cytometry is considered an essential part in medical attention and a parameter to identify the disease as well as a useful guide to clinical treatment. Numerous factors, besides the infection by the human immunodeficiency virus, can influence in the CD4 positive T lymphocytes. The changes in this parameter, generated by these factors, do not indicate real modifications in the immunological status of the patient and should be interpreted with caution.

Palabras clave : HIV; AIDS; treatment; antiretroviral; CD4.
