Case Study
This article presents a case study of papulonodular genital growths in a 26-year-old-HIV-Infected Woman. The patient was pale and emaciated and had oral candidiasis. Examination of the anogenital region revealed papulonodular lesions, varying in size from 0.5 to 4 cm in diameter, with 25 of the lesions being >1 cm in diameter. On curettage, firm, globular materials were extracted from the lesions. The patient's Venereal Disease Research Laboratory slide test results were nonreactive, and the results of an ELISA were positive for HIV-1.
