is this common?
Jul 4, 2005

my son (24) has been hiv+ for 4 yrs. and for the last month he has been running a low grade fevers of 99.5-100.5

is this common with the hiv virus? his id doc. made no mention to the fact of being concerned. his latest labs: cd4 342/22%,vl 34,000...he started sustiva & truvada this week.

thanks for your reply!

Response from Dr. Wohl

Low grade temp elevations are not uncommon among people with HIV. These increases in temp may resolve now that he is on HIV therapy. I would not be too concerned at this point. If his temp increases, becomes bothersome or are associated with other signs of worsening illness (such as weight loss), I'd consider a fuller evaluation.
