Abstract

Many opportunistic infections occur in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is, therefore, not surprising that oral manifestations of these infections occur as well. Such conditions have been described by several investigators.1-4 Some of these manifestations include candidiasis, Herpes simplex infection, human papillomavirus, hairy leukoplakia, periodontal disease, and ulcers. This report will describe oral lesions caused by histoplasmosis that occurred in two patients with AIDS and will discuss the treatment of histoplasmosis.
