Early symptomatic HIV infection

Early symptomatic HIV infection is a stage of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus when symptoms are present but AIDS has not yet developed.
Early symptomatic HIV infection has signs and symptoms typical of HIV infection but not full-blown AIDS. The onset of symptoms signals the transition from asymptomatic HIV infection to HIV disease.
At this early stage of HIV infection, the person does not have signs or symptoms of AIDS such as opportunistic infections, certain cancers, or a CD4 count of less than 200.
Risk factors for HIV infection are:
Being born to an HIV-positive mother
Getting a blood transfusion or blood components
Intravenous drug use
Sexual contact with an infected partner in which there is an exchange of semen or vaginal fluids
 
Diarrhea that persists
Excessive sweating, night sweats

Fever that persists
General feeling of discomfort, illness, or lack of well-being
