This article presents a response to a case study of papulonodular genital growths in a 26-year-old-HIV-Infected Woman. Compared with immunocompetent patients, patients with HIV type 1 (HIV-1) infection are more commonly infected with subtypes other than molluscum contagiosum (MC) virus (MCV) type 1. There are several postulations to explain the pathogenesis of giant MC lesions in patients with advanced HIV infection. It may be because of a higher production of epidermal growth factors by the strains of MCV that are commonly seen in HIV-1-infected patients.
