cc fever and chills
CC: Fever and Chills
  • 32 YO AAM who presented to UNC ED w/ 2 weeks of fevers and chills in December 2007. Initially had acute onset of fever, chills, and sweats, went to local ED and diagnosed with probable viral syndrome. Developed decreased appetite, weight loss, weakness, sore throat, trouble swallowing, and the sensation of food getting stuck in his throat. During this time he also continued to have fever reaching as high as 105 with night sweats, nausea and vomiting.
  • He went back to his local ED where blood cultures, urine cultures, chest x-ray were WNL. He was discharged on ibuprofen, erythromycin 250 mg b.i.d. for 14 days as well as Percocet and promethazine.
  • Developed mild frontal headache and when he changed position, he felt lightheaded and "wobbly" on his legs.
  • After 2.5 weeks of symptoms he came to UNC ED for further workup, admitted for FUO evaluation
  • Since admission he developed a productive cough with no associated SOB, and watery diarrhea.
  • ID was consulted for assistance
  • History of Chlamydia many years ago that was treated with antibiotics
  • History of a negative HIV test a few years ago (he can't remember the exact date)
  • No other medical problems. Never been hospitalized, never had a surgery.

Staging of Acute HIV

(Fiebig, AIDS 2003)

cd8 response
CD8+ Response
  • After initial infection there is a immunologic response with large numbers of CD8+ cells
  • Presence of HIV-specific CD8+ cells is associated with viral containment - lower viral load and slower progression to AIDS
  • This expansion of CD8+ cells puts a evolutionary pressure on the virus, which responds with frequent mutations and viral escape
  • Absolute number of CD8+ cells is not associated with better prognosis
