F031 - Dermatologic Manifestations of HIV and AIDS

Friday, February 16; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify cutaneous manifestations of HIV and AIDS.
  • Manage cutaneous manifestations of HIV and AIDS.


HIV and AIDS patients develop unique infectious and non-infectious cutaneous diseases, many of which carry significant morbidity and mortality. The rise of antiretroviral therapy has decreased the prevalence of these complications in the U.S., decreasing familiarity with these diseases among U.S. dermatologists. However, opportunistic infections, HIV-associated malignancies, hypersensitivity reactions to HIV therapies, and severe primary inflammatory dermatoses persist in certain HIV-infected populations in the developed world, and remain common in developing nations. This case-based session will use patient encounters from the U.S., Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and Latin America to highlight diagnosis and management of HIV-related skin diseases. This activity has been approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) for up to 20 MOC Component 2 Self-Assessment points.
