Sept 2003psoriasis May 2006oral candida June 2006anaemia, weight loss OGD: gastritis, colonoscopy: NAD Nov 2007abnormal LFTs; low WCC chronic hepatitis B July 2008ulcer on palate: large B-cell lymphoma Aug 2008 HIV diagnosed: CD4 0: VL 167, missed opportunities! If current guidelines used, HIV could have been diagnosed up to 5 years earlier
Learning Points Because of his nadir CD4 of 0 he has an increased risk of potential problems despite control of his HIV now He did not disclose any risk factors when his initial medical history was taken Because of this the otherwise excellent medical teams looking after him did not think of HIV even when the diagnosis seems obvious with hindsight A perceived lack of risk should not deter you from offering a test when clinically indicated Test for HIV before treating for hepatitis B as resistance to lamivudine can compromise future HIV treatment options 16
Key messages Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed treatment of HIV infection The benefits of early diagnosis of HIV are well recognised - not offering HIV testing represents a missed opportunity UK guidelines recommend routine HIV testing for patients diagnosed with hepatitis B and lymphoma HIV screening should become a routine test performed whenever there is a clinical indicator such as oral candida or weight loss Some patients may not disclose that they have put themselves at risk of HIV infection in the past 17
