Answer

AIDS manifests as recurrent, severe, and occasionally life-threatening infections and/or opportunistic malignancies. The signs and symptoms are those of the presenting illness, meaning that HIV infection should be suspected as an underlying illness when unusual infections present in apparently healthy individuals.
