|Some Clarification Please! LYMPH NODES
Mar 31, 1999
Hi I have asked many people and read many texts only to come up with different answers so I wondered if you could help me. FIRST, with ARS the lymphadenopathy ...Would it be localized ( ie: couple of nodes beside ears/neck/under chin) or would it be more systemic (neck/armpits/kness,etc) ...because I read somewhere that it has to be >2 places on the body. Would they be small or large and would they be painless or painful? Secondly, is diarrhea a manisfestation of primary HIV infection (ARS) or one of chronic AIDS condition. Your help is greatly appreciated!

It would be systemic since this is a blood borne systemic infection. The would be any size from a pea to a walnut and slightly to moderately painful. Diarrhea can certainly be a manifestation of acute HIV.
