Abstract: This chapter is about management of infections in HIV-infected persons and covers aspergillosis, bartonellosis, mucocutaneous candidiasis, esophageal candidiasis, cytomegalovirus, Cryptococcus neoformans, cryptosporidiosis, herpes simplex virus, microsporidiosis, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, Mycobacterium avium complex infection, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis, and herpes zoster. Although the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has somewhat ameliorated some opportunistic infections that carried a dire prognosis in patients with advanced HIV infection, infection remains a serious threat to those living with HIV. Prompt assessment, testing, diagnosis, and treatment are essential to maintaining the health of those with compromised immune systems.
