I see no reason to merge this with the Acute Medicine entry. They are talking about different (but releated) things. Alecclews (talk) 23:43, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
The above discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.
Example for second paragraph (or, a reason to revise the first)
Acute hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a common use of "acute" that refers to the early phase of an infection that usually results in chronic infection (i.e. a more compelling example for the second paragraph, or indicating that the first paragraph should softened); btw, acute HCV is almost always asymptomatic. (disclosure: I am an author of the cited reference, hence this is only a suggestion.) — soupvector (talk) 22:24, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
