Acute hiv in children
Apr 10, 2000

What are the symptoms of acute hiv infection in children? Are they any different than those seen in adults? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

Interestingly, the acute HIV symptoms (fever, rash, etc) that are commonly described in adults are uncommon in infants. Thrush and enlargement of the lymph glands, liver, or spleen are more common early signs of HIV infection in infants.

Katherine Luzuriaga, M.D.
