Aseptic meningitis?

Nov 26, 2001

Hi there:

Are there any studies published that indicate the prevalence () of aseptic meningitis as a symptom in subjects experiencing ARS?

regards, T

Response from Mr. Kull

Aseptic meningitis is a common symptom of acute HIV-1 infection. One source found that 24% of patients presented with aseptic meningitis in the acute infection stage.

See the following for references:

Kahn JO, Walker BD. Acute human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection. N Engl J Med 1998;339(1):33-9

Schacker T, Collier AC, Hughes J, Shea T, Corey L. Clinical and epidemiologic features of primary HIV infection. Ann Intern Med 1996;125:257-64. [Erratum, Ann Intern Med 1997;126:174.]

Ho DD, Rota TR, Schooley RT, et al. Isolation of HTLV-III from cerebrospinal fluid and neural tissues of patients with neurologic syndromes related to the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. N Engl J Med 1985;313:1493-7.
