|end stage hiv symptoms
Feb 2, 2010
Is it possible to progress to late stage hiv symptom stage within a yr of infection. ie: thrush, parathesia, sinus infections...
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
Let's be clear here. Neither thrush nor sinusitis are end-stage HIV/AIDS symptoms. They can occur in persons who don't have HIV, persons with recent or late-stage HIV.
That said, a small proportion of persons infected with HIV do progress rapidly to AIDS complications-- rarely within a year.
Hope that helps.
Are people with HIV eligible to donate bone marrow?
