Idiopathic CD4+ T-cell Lymphocytopenia: Report of a Case 11 Years after Diagnosis
KeywordsLymphocytopenia, HIV, lymphocyte immunophenotyping
We report the case of a 23-year-old woman evaluated for asthenia and lymphocytopenia. Clinical examination was unremarkable but laboratory tests showed the presence of CD4 lymphocytopenia. Secondary causes of CD4 lymphocytopenia were ruled out and a previous diagnosis of idiopathic CD4+ T-cell lymphocytopenia was retained. CD4 lymphocytopenia has persisted for 11 years now but the patient has been clinically asymptomatic.
