Hi, thanks for answering the question. Is there any similarity between HIV/AIDS symptoms and Syphilus - Treponema pallidum? I've heard there are similarities, and that even in the latter stages they are similar. I'm very interested to know how they are similar. Any information is appreciated.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
You were misinformed-- syphilis and AIDS are quite distinct illnesses.
cmv no HIV
