  1. The burden of mucocutaneous conditions and the association with HIV-I infection in a rural community in Uganda.

    Article - En anglais

    OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of mucocutaneous conditions and their association with HIV-1 infection in a rural community in Uganda.

    METHODS In a prospective cohort study, participants were recruited from a large population study and invited to attend a clinic every 3 months for a detailed medical interview and a thorough physical examination.

    All findings including mucocutaneous findings were coded onto a standard questionnaire.

    RESULTS By the end of 1996,436 participants had provided 1450 person years of observation (pyo) ; 646 pyo in HIV-positives and 804 pyo in HIV-negatives.

    Overall, 70% of participants had a skin condition during follow-up, and although skin conditions were significantly more common in HIV-positive subjects, the background level in HIV-negative subjects was high (77.3% and 63.6%, respectively).

    Herpes zoster, thin/sparse hair, maculo-papular rash and prurigo were significantly more common in the HIV-positives.

    Kaposi sarcoma, palmar/plantar rash and herpes zoster had positive predictive values for HIV infection of over 80%. Oral conditions were found in over 40% of participants and were significantly more common in HIV-positive subjects.

    Oral candidiasis and Kaposi sarcoma were significantly more frequent among HIV-positives.

    CONCLUSION HIV infection increases the already high burden of mucocutaneous diseases in this rural population. (...)
