Progression to AIDS, however, is also associated with hypercoagulability and venous thrombosis, and may result in more comorbidities, such as reactivation of cytomegalovirus. It is therefore unknown whether active cytomegalovirus in HIV infection results in a procoagulant state or whether hypercoagulability is the result of HIV… CONTINUE READING
