Secondary infections???

Oct 6, 2003

Hi Doctor Horwath,

I was just wondering if you have ever heard of having a sinus infection as a secondary infection of seroconversion??? And are secondary infections common.

Thank you

Response from Dr. Horwath

No, I haven't. Seroconversion is often accompanied by a flu-like syndrome, with fever, malaise, muscle and joint aches, etc. Sinus infection is not a manifestation of seroconversion.

Secondary infections by opportunistic agents are common in those with HIV infection and CD4 T cell counts < 200. The lower the CD4 count below 200, the greater the risk of developing an opportunistic infection.

Lymph nodes
can symptoms be brought by worry?
