Neuropathy and initial HIV syndrome
Mar 8, 2001

Is it likely that symptoms of distal neuropathy will show up during the acute HIV syndrome phase? Many thanks and god bless

Response from Dr. Henry

Persons with new onset HIV infection sometimes will get neurologic findings that include headache (meningitis like), pain syndrome (radiculopathy), and disturbances in skin sensation. Rarely would the symptoms mimic the distal neuropathy seen with more established HIV infection or due to drug effects. KH
