Parastic infections and human immunodeficiency virus infection: An overview

E. J. Bottone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the setting of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), numerous classical as well as 'emerging' bacterial and parasitic agents can produce diarrhoeal and systemic infections. Germane to the diagnosis of parasitic agents is knowledge of their biologic attributes, epidemiology, route of acquisition, disease spectrum and symptomatology, and the potential for concomitant co-infection with several agents. The overview will focus on common as well as newly appreciated infectious complications associated with Coccidia, Acanthamoeba, Leishmania, Strongyloides, and the mite Sarcoptes scabiei.
