Preview

Rather than the expected increase in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) load, there was transient suppression of HIV-1 replication during acute dengue infection in a 29-year-old Thai woman. Acute-phase (but not convalescent-phase) serum samples obtained from an HIV-1-uninfected patient with dengue fever reduced HIV-1 infectivity, as determined by a peripheral blood mononuclear cell assay, suggesting the possibility that HIV-1 replication is suppressed during acute dengue fever, as occurs during some cases of scrub typhus infection and measles.
