Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


-Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection may
present as an acute illness, probably occurring shortly after virus
acquisition.1.2 Most cases have been diagnosed retrospectively
following seroconversion. We have seen two patients with a clinical
picture compatible with acute HIV disease, and have tested their
acute phase sera for HIV antigen.
