Dr. Mangala HC [2] | Dr. Sneha Gandhi | Dr. S B Murugesh [3]


Abstract: Dermatologic diseases are common in the HIV-infected population. More than 90 % of patients develop skin lesions at some time during the disease. In some patients, skin is the first organ affected. This study was conducted in a tertiary hospital for a period of three months from September 2016 to December 2016. Physical examination was performed to identify all possible skin disorders. In cases with doubtful clinical diagnosis of skin disorder, skin biopsies were taken for histopathological examination and also relevant lab tests were performed. Most common HIV-related dermatological manifestations were seborrheic dermatitis (54 %), xerosis (49 %), pruritic popular eruption (46 %), dermatophyte infection (39 %), generalized skin hyperpigmentation (26 %), scabies (15 %), onychomycosis (14 %), oral candidiasis (17 %) and photo dermatitis (15 %)
