Answer

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
