Doctor, a very important fever question
May 23, 2003

Is a one night fever that goes away completely by morning with no other symptoms a sign of acute retroviral syndrome?

Response from Dr. Wohl

A single episode of a night sweat or fever would be unusual, however, some people don't experience any symptoms of acute HIV infection so there is likely a full spectrum of manifestations of ARS. If in doubt, check it out. See an HIV specialist and ask their advice based on any potential exposures. DW
