Creator Motswaledi, H. M.
Subject — HIV; immunocompromised
Description The introduction of antiretroviral medication has changed the epidemiology, morbidity and mortality of HIV disease. Nevertheless, cutaneous disorders due to HIV infection remain a major problem in HIV-infected patients. These disorders are mainly infections, inflammatory and neoplastic in origin. Some of these disorders occur at normal CD4 cell counts, while others occur typically at low CD4 cell counts. Clinicians should be aware of various presentations of these disorders and their treatment as they can impact negatively on patient’s quality of life
