The changesin the peripheral blood ofHIV-infected patients with severecommunity-acquired pneumonia


The article investigates the changes in the peripheral blood of HIV-infected patients with
severe community-acquired pneumonia. It was found that pneumonia in the late stages of HIV
infection is characterized by anemia, leukopenia, a more pronounced shift to stab, decrease in
the number of lymphocytes, monocytes, and increase of segmented neutrophils, higher levels
of ESR. The study identified the relationship between the intensity of changes in the blood
and the severity of pneumonia.
