ARS, Kaposis and Molluscum
Feb 20, 2002

Is it possible during ARS/prior to antibody formation for these lesions (Kaposi's and Molluscum) to rapidly present and disappear? Or are these lesions more generally associated with late stage infection? Thank you for your help?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

KS and molluscum are typically associated with advanced HIV disease. It would be pretty unusual for them to appear and regress during the course of acute seroconversion.
