Abstract

© 2014 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. Objectives: Evidence from the current era of combination antiretroviral therapy supports an association between HIV and cerebrovascular disease. In addition to traditional vascular risk factors, HIV-specific factors including immunodeficiency and viral replication may also predict stroke risk. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between CD4+ cell count, viral suppression and validated ischemic stroke outcomes.
