Abstract

Pulmonary infections remain an important complication of HIV infection, even in the current era of potent anti-retroviral therapy. Employing an integrated approach that combines radiographic pattern recognition with knowledge of a patient's clinical symptoms, laboratory data, immune status level, demographic information, and drug therapy can enhance the interpretation of imaging studies in HIV-infected patients. Although chest radiography remains the mainstay of imaging the HIV-positive patient with respiratory symptoms, CT plays an increasingly important secondary role in selected cases.
