Early detection & symptoms?

May 14, 2005

With all the talks about early detection and early treatment, I am wondering if most people experience acute symptoms and if there is a reason why for exemple some do and others don't. Is age a factor in having strong vs inexistant symptoms? Genetics? Health? Because how can one be treated early if we don't feel symptoms? thanks

Response from Dr. Pierone

Most people do experience symptoms with primary HIV infection. Why some people do not have symptoms is unknown and is entirely speculative. Your point is well taken that is one has asymptomatic infection, the diagnosis almost certainly will be delayed.
