When an acute OI is present, initiation of ART is usually expected to improve immune function and contribute to faster resolution of the OI. The initiation of ART in the setting of an acute OI also has preventive benefit; a second OI is less likely to occur if ART is started promptly rather than delaying the initiation of ART. For Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), initiation of ART has been documented to lead to resolution of lesions in the absence of specific therapy for the sarcoma (53). Initiation of ART has been documented to be effective for OIs for which effective therapy does not exist; cryptosporidiosis, microsporidiosis, and progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) might resolve or at least stabilize after the institution of effective ART (50--52).

The second group includes OIs that occur >12 weeks after initiation of ART among patients with suppressed HIV ribonucleic acid (RNA) levels and sustained CD4+ counts >200 cells/L (73,74). Determining whether these represent a form of IRIS rather than incomplete immunity with the occurrence of a new OI is difficult. The third group includes OIs that occur among patients who are experiencing virologic and immunologic failure while on ART. These represent clinical failure of ART.

henselae and B. quintana infections have been identified in HIV-infected persons (507). Bartonella species cause infections that include cat scratch disease, trench fever, relapsing bacteremia, endocarditis, bacillary angiomatosis (BA), and bacillary peliosis hepatis (506). However, only B. quintana or B. In HIV-infected patients, bartonellosis is often a chronic illness, lasting for months to years, with BA lesions and intermittent bacteremia. henselae (506,507). The latter two manifestations occur only in immunocompromised persons. BA is caused by either B. BA most often occurs late in HIV infection, in patients with a median CD4+ count of

After adjustment for the CD4+count, the risk of isosporiasis was substantially lower among persons receiving prophylaxis with TMP-SMX, sulfadiazine, or pyrimethamine (unspecified regimens). without) a history of PCP---indirect evidence of a protective effect from use of TMP-SMX for PCP (1363). In some settings, chemoprophylaxis with TMP-SMX has been associated with a lower incidence or prevalence of isosporiasis (30, 1362, 1363). In analyses of data from a county AIDS surveillance registry during the pre-ART era, the prevalence of isosporiasis was lower in persons with (vs. In an observational study, the incidence of isosporiasis decreased after widespread introduction of ART, except among persons with CD4+ counts

In a small study, an increased risk for birth defects among infants born to women receiving antiretrovirals and folate antagonists, primarily trimethoprim, was reported, whereas no increase was observed among those with either antiretroviral or folate antagonist exposure alone (176). The preferred initial therapy during pregnancy is TMP-SMX, although alternate therapies can be used if patients are unable to tolerate or are unresponsive to TMP-SMX (172) (AI). Follow-up ultrasound to assess fetal anatomy at 18--20 weeks is recommended (BIII). Although first-trimester exposure to trimethoprim might be related to a small increased risk for birth defects, pregnant women in their first trimester with PCP should be treated with TMP-SMX (AIII). In case-control studies, trimethoprim has been associated with an increased risk for neural tube defects and cardiovascular, urinary tract, and multiple anomalies after first-trimester exposure (173--175). PCP diagnostic considerations for pregnant women are the same as for nonpregnant women. Although folic acid supplementation of 0.4 mg/day is routinely recommended for all pregnant women (177), data do not indicate if higher levels of supplementation, such as the 4 mg/day recommended for pregnant women with a previous infant with a neural tube defect, would provide added benefit in this situation. Indications for therapy are the same as for nonpregnant women. Epidemiologic data suggest that folic acid supplementation might reduce this risk (174,175), but no controlled studies have been done.

Most herpes zoster-related complications, including herpes zoster dissemination, occur in patients with CD4+ counts of

Asymptomatic dissemination of infection beyond the lungs is common and cellular immunity is critical in controlling infection. Virtually all cases of primary histoplasmosis are acquired by inhalation of microconidia from the mycelial phase of the organism. Reactivation of a silent focus of infection that was acquired years earlier can occur when cellular immunity wanes and is the presumed mechanism for disease occurrence in nonendemic areas. The incidence of symptomatic histoplasmosis in patients with HIV infection appears to have declined since the use of potent ART.

In dense urban areas where a squad car is never more than a couple blocks away and high population densities mean errant shots can lead to devastating collateral damage, gun ownership has less upside and more downside. The effective outsourcing of the management of violence to the police means those who do have guns are more likely to have obtained them illegally with aggressive intentions rather than legally with defensive or hunting ones. An armed urban core is Compton in 1988.

Providers should apply a small amount to warts only and allow them to dry, at which time a white "frosting" develops. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or bichloroacetic acid (BCA) (80%--90%) act as caustic agents to kill wart tissue. The treatment can be repeated weekly for 3--6 weeks (BIII). If an excess amount of acid is applied, the treated area should be powdered with talc, sodium bicarbonate, or liquid soap to remove unreacted acid. The expected efficacy is 60%--80%.
