Symptoms of Pneumocystis pneumonia
The symptoms of PCP are fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue. In people with weakened immune systems, PCP can be very serious, so it is important to see a doctor if you have these symptoms.
In HIV-infected patients, PCP usually presents sub-acutely, and symptoms include a low-grade fever. In HIV-uninfected patients, symptoms of PCP tend to develop more quickly and patients typically experience a high fever.
