Medical history should include inquiries about the following:

  • Duration/intensity of symptoms, with special attention to B symptoms
  • Neurological or gastrointestinal manifestations
  • History of environmental and/or infectious pathogens (eg, HIV, hepatitis B or C virus)
  • Exposure to certain viral organisms, which may affect treatment selection or outcome
