Overview of the in-patient history: temperature curve, blood cell parameters and Creactive protein. The continuous red line is the temperature curve. The red arrows above the curve indicate time points for CMV-, EBV- and HHV-8 serology and/or PCR. The long black arrows beneath show time points from left to right for lymph node biopsy, liver biopsy and bone marrow aspiration. HB = Haemoglobin in g/L, PLT = Platelet count x 1012/L, WBC = white blood cell count x 109/L, LC = lymphocyte count x 109/L, C-reactive protein in mg/L
