The dermatopathology of AIDS

Cutaneous diseases other than Kaposi's sarcoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The cutaneous manifestations of AIDS other than Kaposi's sarcoma can be divided into two broad groups. The first is composed of opportunistic infections that do not usually occur in immmunocompetent individuals. These include such entities as cytomegalovirus infection, histoplasmosis, tuberculosis, and others. The second group consists of unusual noninfectious eruptions such as seborrheic dermatitis-like condition and so-called 'papular urticaria.' It is essential that the dermatologist as well as the dermatohistopathologist be cognizant of both the clinical as well as the histopathologic patterns of these conditions. Even though the prognosis for AIDS is grave, it remains an important part of the management of patients with this condition to recognize and treat both infectious and aggravating manifestations.
