Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We reported two cases of patients with coinfection by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 and human T-cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV) type I who developed opportunistic infections despite of relatively high CD4+ cells count. These cases showed clinical evidence to consider an earlier antiretroviral treatment for coinfected patientes regardless CD4+ cells counts.
