Abstract :

 Background:  Oral manifestations of HIV disease is important, as they affect the qualityof life

 

and  usefulmarker of disease progression.

 

Aims:Thestudy was designed  to search for  the oral lesions in  seropositive patients and their

 

possibleprognostic value.

 

Methods: This prospective observational  study  included  211 new cases  with

 

consecutive two ELISA test positive attended in OPD .Relevant investigations  and

 

biopsies were  taken to confirm clinical diagnosis . Thecausal  relationship between

 

prevalence of oral lesions and demographical variants,therapeutic regimen and CD4

 

count were evaluated.The technique and protocol were approved by the ethics

 

committee of the institution.

 

Results :Out of 211 patients ,75 (35.44%) patients had detectable oral lesion with male

 

predominance  .Majority  belonged to the age group of 21– 30 years . All thevariants of

 

candidiasiswere seen. Pseudo memanous type was most frequentlyobserved .

 

Herpes simplex is the commonest viral infection. One case of hairy leukoplakia was

 

seen. Necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis (NUP) was observed in four cases.Aphthous

 

ulcer were seen in eight cases.

 

Conclusions :In our series cases with orofacial involvementhad CD4 count  <600

 

cells/ml.  Majorityof the patients  had CD4< 200 cells/ml .
