We have a support group member who had her CD57 come back at 800. Has anyone on here had that happen?? Mine was extremely low.

Hi, Mine is also really low. I have read somewhere that if someone's CD57 is high and the patient is still very sick, often there is an underlying strep infection.

Just did some reading and bartonella can throw the CD57 numbers in the higher range.

This happened to me, too. My doc called Dr. S, of the S CD-57 Scale.
He said this can happen when the immune system is in overdrive, but making faulty cells. It is indicative of a compromised immune system. The same thing can happen in HIV patients.
