timing of ARS?

Jun 15, 2001

Hi Dr. Holodniy,

How soon can ARS present itself? Most of the literature/information I've come across says it occurs 2-4 weeks after exposure (there is a latency period). In your expert opinion is this the case or do you feel it could happen at 5 or 6 days or would that be too soon? Much thanks!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

We don't have accurate data. Most people come to medical attention when they have symptoms, or when they have had them for awhile.

Testing after 6 months?
testing accuracy and cbc
