    The example given above is also correct. I do wonder why so many people viewed this question and gave no answer.

    No. There are two ways of expressing that properly.

    Symptoms she does not have include fever, night sweats, headache and a cough.

    If you want to be more formal, do it as follows.

    Symptoms not present include:

    fever;
    night sweats;
    headache;
    cough.

    Look carefully at where I have used a colon, lower case not capitals, semi-colons and a full stop.

    The 4 words on seperate lines should be indented slightly, which disappeared when I posted the answer. You can also use bullet points, which would do that automatically.
