Abstract

The most common orofacial disorders found among HIV-infected children are oral candidiasis, parotid gland enlargement, lymphadenopathy, and oral dryness. These changes are strongly related to immune suppression, immune deterioration, and HIV disease progression. The classification of oral lesions in pediatric patients needs to be updated to reflect the relationship between immunologic and virologic markers.
