Gastric; GI tract; Infection; Opportunistic
Gastric infections in individuals with HIV/AIDS are uncommon. The exact incidence is difficult to determine, since many are asymptomatic. Bacterial, viral, fungal, and protozoan infections have all been reported. However, the likelihood of certain infections is dependent on the degree of immunosuppression. This article will review the diagnosis, clinical manifestations, and treatment of gastric infections in HIV/AIDS.
