acute stage symptoms
May 29, 2003

Does the fact that I've had symptoms during acute infection(specifically swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, mild night sweats, a few rash bumps) suggest that my hiv will progress more quickly than in those who don't have symptoms? Maybe my immune system is weak? Maybe the strain of virus is very strong? Thank You

Response from Dr. Young

There is very little information that suggests that the severity of acute symptoms relates to the risk of having either rapid- or slow disease progression. BY

Another early treatment question
Therapie, acute HIV infection
