ALDAMA NEGRETE, Juan Guillermo; ALDAMA NEGRETE, Fabián  e  ALDAMA CABALLERO, Arnaldo Benjamin. Mucocutaneous infections in patients with HIV/AIDS. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.2, pp.48-54. ISSN 2312-3893.


The appearance of HIV/AIDS produced important changes in various pathologies. Infectious diseases, many of them with mucocutaneous manifestations, increased in frequency, presenting unusual evolution and response to treatment. The objective is to communicate the frequency and clinical-epidemiological characteristics of mucocutaneous infections in patients with HIV / AIDS.

Material and methods:

Prospective, descriptive, observational, cross-sectional study. Male and female patients, older than 15 years, referred by the HIV/AIDS Program of the Hospital Nacional to the Dermatology Service in the period October 2018-October 2019 were included.


One hundred patients with a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS were examined, 37 presented mucocutaneous infections, and 8 of them revealed more than one infection. Fungal (53%) and viral (26.7%) lesions predominated. The frequencies of bacterial and parasitic lesions were 15% and 4.4% respectively. The main diagnoses were candidiasis (29%), herpes simplex (15.6%) and tinea corporis (11%).


In this population, mucocutaneous infections were very frequent (37%), predominantly fungal infections, specifically candidiasis.
