Seroconversion and PN
Dec 3, 2001

Dr Feinberg,

Is it normal to have Peripheral Neuripathy during seroconversion? Is it also normal to have PN three months after exposure to HIV?

In this case that PN is possible does it resolve by itself like the other symptoms? Is it normal to just have PN as a symptom 3 months after exposure without any other symptom?

Thanks for the response

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It is not typical to have PN as part of a seroconversion illness, or even a few months later. PN usually occurs fairly late in the course of HIV disease.
