Acquired immune deficiency syndrome
Opportunistic infections and malignancies that develop in AIDS patients are respiratory infections with Pneumocystis jirovecii, tuberculosis, or other bacteria; neoplasms such as Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma; disseminated or localized fungal infections such as cryptococcosis and candidiasis; disseminated or localized parasitic infections such as toxoplasmosis, strongyloidiasis, and cryptosporidiosis; and other viral infections such as cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex.
Treatment includes continuation of antiretroviral therapy and infection control measures including vaccination, avoidance of high-risk behaviors, good hygiene, and avoidance of other sources of opportunistic infection including reptiles, cat feces, and birds, travel to developing nations, and consuming contaminated food or water.
