first symptoms
Jan 3, 2002

Are mono-like symptoms first, or is mononucleosis itself a symptom?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Mononucleosis is an infection marked by a number of symptoms, such as sore throat, fever, and swollen lymph nodes. New (acute) HIV infections can look very much like mono, because the two infections can cause the same kinds of symptoms. I hope that untangles it for you.

CMV negative, what does it mean?
