Numerous differences exist between sinusitis in HIV and non-HIV infected patients. Some of the differences include HIV sinusitis pathogenesis, bacteriology, and management. This paper addresses these issues so that physicians may adequately prevent, diagnose, and treat persons suffering from HIV sinus infection.
