Oral manifestations associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection in a Spanish population

Oral manifestations associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection in a Spanish population A study was made of the oral manifestations in 396 patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The following risk groups were established: intravenous drug users (79.5%), homosexuals (7.8%), homosexual intravenous drug users (3.3%). heterosexuals (8.1%) and hemophiliacs/transfusion patients (1.3%). The oral lesions, in decreasing order of frequency, were: periodontal disease (78.28%). candidiasis (65.65%). hairy leukoplakia (16.16%). herpes simplex virus lesions (5.30%), Kaposi's sarcoma (2.27%), recurrent aphthous ulceration (RAS) (1.01%), lichen planus (0.5%), non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma (0.25%). tuberculous lesion of the tongue (0.25%) and ulcerations of uncertain etiology (0.25%). Attention is drawn to the greater predominance of these lesions in patients with CD4 values of less than 200/mm3, compared with those who have higher lymphocyte counts. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Oral Pathology & Medicine Wiley

Abstract

A study was made of the oral manifestations in 396 patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The following risk groups were established: intravenous drug users (79.5%), homosexuals (7.8%), homosexual intravenous drug users (3.3%). heterosexuals (8.1%) and hemophiliacs/transfusion patients (1.3%). The oral lesions, in decreasing order of frequency, were: periodontal disease (78.28%). candidiasis (65.65%). hairy leukoplakia (16.16%). herpes simplex virus lesions (5.30%), Kaposi's sarcoma (2.27%), recurrent aphthous ulceration (RAS) (1.01%), lichen planus (0.5%), non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma (0.25%). tuberculous lesion of the tongue (0.25%) and ulcerations of uncertain etiology (0.25%). Attention is drawn to the greater predominance of these lesions in patients with CD4 values of less than 200/mm3, compared with those who have higher lymphocyte counts.
