Abstract

Oral lesions of patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are a leading cause of morbidity among afflicted patients. In this study we summarized the most prevalent oral infections among HIV patients and the appropriate treatments. The most common infection is candidiasis followed by viral infection. The oral lesions have direct association with CD4 lymphocyte count. Also, these conditions are seen less in populations with ART medications. HIV infected patients with oral lesion should be diagnosed and receive appropriate treatment.
