Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GI) disease is frequent in all types of immunocompromised patients but occurs with greatest frequency in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Thus, much of this review deals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related GI diseases. Gastrointestinal diseases in other immunocompromised patients are compared with those in patients with AIDS. Conditions unique to transplant recipients, such as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs), are discussed separately. We have divided these GI diseases into four main categories: (1) HIV-related inflammatory conditions other than opportunistic infections (HIV-related enteropathy, proctocolitis, and CD8 lymphocytosis); (2) inflammatoryconditions unrelated to HIV or opportunistic infections (neutropenic enterocolitis, regional enteritislike enteropathy, and GVHD); (3) opportunistic infections (illnesses caused by herpesvirus, cytomegalovirus, and miscellaneous other viruses; Mycobacterium, Candida, Histoplasma, Cryptococcus, Cryptosporidium, Microsporida, Isospora, Leishmania, Toxoplasma and Strongyloides organisms as well as Pneumocystitis carinii; and (4) neoplasias (Kaposi's sarcoma [KS], AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma [NHL], HIV-related Hodgkin's disease [HD], PTLDs, and miscellaneous neoplasms). The prevalence, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, gross pathological findings, and microscopic features of each disease entity are discussed. (C) 1994 by W.B. Saunders Company
