HK Kar, Raj Narayan, RK Gautam, RK Jain, V Doda, S
Twenty eight HIV positive patients were included in this study. They were evaluated for their mucocutaneous disorders, sexually transmitted diseases and other systemic disorders between 1994-95 in the department of Dermatology and STD Dr R M L Hospital of New Delhi. The heterosexual contact with commercial sex workers (CSWs) was the most common route of HIV transmission. Chancroid, syphilis and genital warts were common STDs found in HIV positive patients. Oral thrush (67.9%) was the commonest mucocutaneous disorder found in these patients followed by herpes zoster (25%) and seborrhoeic dermatitis (21.4%). There was no unusual clinical presentation seen in mucocutaneous disorders and STDs.
