FA 2010 and Goljan seem to have discrepancies on ranges of CD4 counts in which certain diseases occur. The trends are more or less right, but the numbers are a bit off in each.

Obviously the diseases don't sit there waiting for 400 to drop to 399, but does anyone have any input into whether this matters at all?

On the real thing, they are not going to make you distinguish between 2 disease that appear at similar CD4 counts. It is going to be 3 things that occur around 200, 1 thing that doesn't occur in AIDS and 1 thing that occurs at CD4 count of 50.
