Clinical symptoms of HIV

Generally, a person infected with HIV does not show any apparent symptoms for a number (3 to 12) of years. Ten to fifteen percent infected people may, however, suffer from mild fever, headache and uneasiness for sometime after a few weeks of infection. Soon these symptoms disappear, and infected persons continue transmitting the virus to the persons.

Gradual destruction of more and more  lymphocytes  through several years ultimately leads to a full blown AIDS disease  during which a patient suffers from persistent fever  and diarrhoea, loss of  appetite and weight, weakness and fatigue, body pain, white lesions in mouth and   alimentary and warts upon  anus and genitals. Eventfully the patient loses immunity and dies of multiple   infectious diseases.
