Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019, which emerged in Wuhan in China in early December 2019, gradually spread across the world and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March, 12 2020. The disease shows a wide spectrum, ranging from asymptomatic course to severe acute respiratory syndrome. Although data on SARS-CoV-2 infection in HIV-infected cases are still limited, it is thought that the presence of comorbidities is important for mortality and morbidity in infected cases. In this report, it was aimed to evaluate SARS-CoV-2 infection in a patient diagnosed with HIV for six years with negative HIV-1 viral load and a CD4 lymphocyte count of 240 cells/mm(3).
