In brief: They may shrink

lymphadenopathy due to HIV can fluctuate over time.
some patients have the nodes return to normal, while in other patients they may stay mildly enlarged over time. lymph nodes are very enlarged or continue to grow should be biopsied, particularly in the setting of HIV infection as there is an increased risk of malignancies.
