5.      Deadly diseases often coevolve with their hosts (e.g. myxomatosis and rabbits).  Based on this, what do you predict will happen to the effects of HIV (virus that causes the disease AIDS) on humans over time and why?

The patient with HIV may present with signs and symptoms of any of the stages of HIV infection. No physical findings are specific to HIV infection; the physical findings are those of the presenting infection or illness. Manifestations include the following:

  • 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

  • AIDS manifests as recurrent, severe, and occasionally life-threatening infections or opportunistic malignancies

  • HIV infection can cause some sequelae, including AIDS-associated dementia/encephalopathy and HIV wasting syndrome (chronic diarrhea and weight loss with no identifiable cause)
