    Background and Objective: Opportunistic infections are the leading cause of death among patients subjected to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The aim of this study was to compare the seroprevalence of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and...

    Background. Persistent CD8 T-cell expansion, low CD4/CD8 T-cell ratios, and heightened inflammation persist in antiretroviral therapy (ART)-treated human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and are associated with increased risk of morbid outcomes. We explored the role of cytomegalovirus...

    Background: Chronic antigenic stimulation by cytomegalovirus (CMV) is thought to increase “immunosenesence” of aging, characterized by accumulation of terminally differentiated CD28- CD8+ T cells and increased CD57, a marker of proliferative history. Whether chronic HIV infection...

    A pneumomediastinum is an unusual complication of respiratory infections in HIV-positive patients, usually reported in association with pneumocystis pneumonia. We describe a case of an HIV-positive patient with a pneumomediastinum who had cytomegalovirus pneumonitis. This is an important...

    The article discusses a study by Jennifer E. Thorne, which found that a low CD4+ count increases the risk for cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in patients with HIV/AIDS. A decline in mortality has resulted in patients with HIV/AIDS living longer lives. Early screening and detection of CMV...

    The rate of comorbidities not related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) among HIV-infected patients may be higher than expected. We assessed the incidence of comorbidities not related to HIV infection or AIDS by CD4 cell count and highly...

    Toxoplasmosis is a severe opportunistic infection in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The lung is a major site of infection after the central nervous system. In this report we described two cases of pneumonia due to Toxoplasma gondii infection in HIV patients with...
