HIV & AIDS
HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS | HIV |
ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME | AIDS |
Under the guidance of Dr Sudeshni Naidoo at the Department of Community Dentistry, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, Tygerberg, South Africa, posters have been produced illustrating common oral lesions often seen in connection with HIV/AIDS. We have got the permission to include some of this illustrative material in the CAPP.
It should be understood that the posters are intended for use by health workers. It should also be understood that lesions similar to the ones shown on the pictures also can appear in persons without the disease, why a lesion not can be used as the only criterium for disease being present.
* Our thanks to Dr Sudeshni Naidoo, University of Stellenbosch, giving us permission to reproduce the posters.
