What is ARS?
Mar 28, 2001

I am Hiv pos.And i read alot of qestions about ARS, could you explain what this is and what symptoms you look for. I am undetectible and cd4 480. Could i stll get this? or what other things should i look for?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

ARS stands for Acute Retroviral Syndrome, the constellation of diverse indications and symptoms that people experience when they are first infected with HIV. Not everyone has an identifiable ARS. Since you're already HIV+, you cannot get this now.
