Abstract

Gastrointestinal involvement is common in patients of human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Although the gastrointestinal complaints are frequent in these patients the incidence of acute abdominal conditions requiring surgical intervention is low (2-5%). We present a series of patients who had unusual presentations of common or AIDS- specific surgical conditions leading to bowel perforation and peritonitis.
