Abstract

Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and progression to acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) are associated with a vide variety of morbidities. Local and systemic diseases can develop in association with HIV infection and may manifest themselves as malignancies of the oropharynx. Advances in HIV management, fueled by increasing understanding of molecular pathogenesis, have resulted in marked changes in the prevalence of oral malignant disease. This paper discusses recent trends in the presentation and treatment of malignancies related to HIV and AIDS with an emphasis on malignancies seen in the oral cavity.
