end stage hiv symptoms

Question

Is it possible to progress to late stage hiv symptom stage within a yr of infection. ie: thrush, parathesia, sinus infections...

Answer

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.
