Abstract
HIV-1 diagnosis is usually based on the detection of specific antibodies, appearing in a time-determined pattern following the infection. We describe a prolonged HIV-1 seroconversion in an elite controller (defined as having HIV-1 RNA persistently <50copies/ml while untreated). HIV-1 diagnosis was delayed and complicated by this atypical evolution.
