Skin diseases are common problems in patients with HIV infection and AIDS.
Patients with HIV infection may present first to the dermatologist or to many
other groups of physicians. This book is designed to help dermatologists and
nondermatologists alike to recognise the cutaneous manifestations of HIV infection
and AIDS so that diagnosis can be made quickly and therapy begun as soon as
Latest treatments are described including Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART). While HAART has transformed the lives of patients with HIV and AIDS these medications have side effects and the authors reinforce the warning that HAART is not a cure.
The book covers the entire spectrum of HIV associated cutaneous diseases and emphasises how they present in immunocompromised patients. Each entity is discussed in detail including clinical presentation, histopathological findings, morphology and treatment. Text is accompanied by colour photos of the highest quality.
