INTRODUCTION it is known that in early-stage HIV-induced disease there is a discrepancy between the levels of viral burden and virus replication in peripheral blood versus lymphoid organs. HIV disease is active in the lymphoid tissue throughout the period of clinical latency. However, it is not known how long term progression of HIV infection is influenced by short-term changes in the adenoidal size. OBJECTIVE To assess the reliability of adenoidal-nasopharyngeal (AN) ratio in predicting… CONTINUE READING
