Are There Individuals Who Do Not Have Flu-like Symptoms After Exposure
A lot of people have flu-like symptoms the first couple weeks after their initial encounter with HIV. But are there some people that do not have these symptoms?
In patients who have acute seroconversion, one can develop a prolonged flu-like illness. Only a few patients remember these symptoms (30-40%) and in some patients it may be so mild that they do not remember these symptoms at all.
