Abstract
Results: A significant correlation between TLC and CD4+ T lymphocyte count was observed (r = 0.698, p < 0.001). TLC cut off of 1360 cells/µl as a predictor of CD4 count < 200 cells/µl had 82.4% sensitivity and 90.3% specificity. The ROC curve demonstrated highest area under curve (AUC= 0.8) for TLC of 1360 cells/µl. Conclusion: TLC can be used as a surrogate marker for CD4+ T lymphocyte count for monitoring treatment in resource poor settings.
