Abstract

In a structured treatment interruption (STI) trial, 3 of 23 patients in a CD4 cell count-guided treatment arm developed recurring thrombocytopenia associated with the interruption of antiretroviral therapy. All 3 patients had slightly low or normal platelet counts before initiating antiretroviral therapy. STI may play a role in inducing thrombocytopenia in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection.
