Answer

The patient may present with signs and symptoms of any of the stages of HIV infection. Acute seroconversion manifests as a flulike illness, consisting of fever, malaise, and a generalized rash. The asymptomatic phase is generally benign. Generalized lymphadenopathy is common and may be a presenting symptom.
