Introduction: Viral load and CD4 cell count are the main principal indicators about evolution of the disease by HIV. Stage of infection related clinical and inmmunological status.
Objective: To compare CD4 cell count, viral load and stage of HIV infection at admission of the patients for 10 years. Method: 578 clinical records were reviewed of patients infected with HIV, catered in the period 2007-2016, in CAPASITS Chihuahua. CD4 cell count, viral load and stage of HIV infection were compared yearly.
Results: There was no significant difference in the CD4 cell count with p=0.272, in the initial viral load with p=0.653, and not in the infection stage with p=0.466, at admission, during the 10 years reviewed.
Conclusions: There was no statistically significant difference in the 3 variables, which suggests that the patients entered with the same clinical and immunological deterioration during the 10 years.
