Fifty HIV infected cases with mucocutaneous disorders were classified according to CDC classification of HIV disease (1987). Fungal infections were the commonest, followed by viral and bacterial infections and miscellaneous disorders. Oral candidiasis was the commonest fungal infection and association with dysphagia, an AIDS defining condition, was noted in 11 cases in our study. Dermatophytosis was the next frequent fungal disorder observed in 14 cases. Out of the viral infections, herpes simplex was the most frequent disorder. A total of 125 mucocutaneous disorders was diagnosed in our 50 patients. A mean value of 1.71 diagnoses per patient was observed in stage II of HIV disease whereas in stage III of IV, it was 2.0 and 3.0 diagnoses per patient respectively, clearly showing that number of dermatoses increased with the progression of HIV disease.
