Eyelash length in HIV-infected patients.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Juan Canalejo, La Coruña, Spain.


Acquired trichomegaly of the eyelashes in HIV-infected patients usually appears at the late stage of HIV infection. Eyelash length was measured in a series of 204 HIV patients, and no correlation with CD4 cell count, viral load, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention category, and AIDS case criteria was established. Our data support the finding that eyelash trichomegaly is currently uncommon in HIV-infected patients, perhaps because of antiretroviral therapy or an improvement in their immune situation.
