Difference between ARS and AVS?
Jan 28, 2002
Hi, You sometimes use the term AVS and sometime ARS. Are they two different expressions for the same thing?
Response from Mr. Kull
Yes. The symptoms/syndrome one may experience during the first months of HIV infection is often referred to in different ways: acute HIV (Type-1) infection, primary HIV infection, acute retroviral syndrome, and (primarily in this forum as far as I can tell) acute viral syndrome.
For information about acute HIV infection, please see http://www.thebody.com/nmai/acute_infection.html.
