Abstract

Gynecologic disease is commonly encountered in women infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The clinical course of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, invasive cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, syphilis, and vaginal candidiasis may be altered by HIV infection and may be refractory to standard treatment, especially with increasing degrees of immune suppression. Careful screening for gynecologic disease and vigilant surveillance for treatment failure are important in the care of women infected with HIV.
