What is the most obvious feature of AIDS window period? How long can AIDS patients generally live
AIDS was first discovered in California, USA. In June 1981, five strong young men in California developed pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. This is a rare type of pneumonia, which usually occurs in patients with weakened immune system. Therefore, the diseases of these five young people have attracted the attention of the local medical community. The survey showed that the five young people had a history of homosexuality. In July of the same year, 26 cases of Kaposi's sarcoma were reported, and then new cases were found continuously, indicating that new infections began to spread. Later, the United States Centers for Disease Control issued a new bulletin, listing another 10 cases of similar strange diseases, including 2 cases with rare skin cancer Kaposi's sarcoma, or known as multiple hemorrhagic sarcoma of the skin. In December 1981, Rosenberg, a clinical physician at the Claude Bernard Hospital in Paris, France, also diagnosed two young gay men suffering from Kaposi's sarcoma, confirming that AIDS also occurred in France.
In the United States, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia originally only occurred in patients whose resistance was severely suppressed, and it was not harmful to the health. It was an opportunistic infection with extreme exhaustion of the body's immunity. The above five patients are always healthy, and there is no candidate with low immune function. It is abnormal to have this disease. These five patients are all gay men, and this disease may be related to homosexual lifestyle, or transmitted by sexual contact. Soon, medical staff confirmed Kaposi's sarcoma in another 26 homosexuals. Later, several homosexuals with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia were found in New York, both male and female. They are drug addicts and have a common history of acupuncture.
In January 1982, a 55-year-old American man died of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. He is neither a homosexual nor an intravenous drug user, but a hemophiliac who has used blood products. After his death, two similar cases were found in the United States. Later, many countries have reported similar cases in succession. These patients have acquired insufficient immunity, and general exposure will cause opportunistic infection, which has attracted the attention of the world.
In September 1982, the United States Centers for Disease Control officially named this disease as Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
