Rapid DILS onset and longterm prognosis implications

Mar 21, 2010

Not sure which is the best forum for this. Is it possible for DILS to manifest in as little as 10-weeks after exposure? And what might such a rapid manifestation mean for longer term prognosis? I thought I read something about DILS being a hyper immune response condition that could point to an otherwise slower progression of disease. Thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It would seem unlikely that short a time after infection. DILS is a hyper CD8 cell response in HIV infection, which sometimes leads to problems associated with swollen lymph and salivary glands. I am not sure we have enough information about in a large enough group of people to know whether progression is affected.
