Abstract

Mucocutaneous diseases are more frequent in HIV/AIDS-infected children than in the normal population. We analyze mucocutaneous disorders with atypical presentations in a large population of HIV-infected children, with or without full-blown AIDS, compared to a population of HIV seroreverted children. The majority of these cutaneous disorders have an infectious etiology and their frequency is related to the degree of deterioration of the immune system. Some diseases commonly observed in adults are rare in children; neoplasms are an exception.
