General & Family Physician 's  Response

The possibility of HIV is there in this case. HIV infection can present this way. However, full-blown AIDS patients have much worse symptoms with opportunistic infections and rare neoplasm.

Please do a simple ELISA test on the patient to rule out HIV infection with a prior informed consent.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
