Abstract

Since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) to combat HIV disease in 1996 there has been a shift in the focus of its management from that of a rapidly life limiting condition to one of chronic disease management, in the developed world.

As ENT surgeons may be involved with the care of these patients increasingly from a chronic disease perspective, a sound knowledge of its manifestation in the head and neck is needed. We also look into conditions that have now become pathognomic for the disease and explain their aetiology.
