Abstract



The insidious damage to the immune system by the human immunodeficiency virus results in increasing susceptibility to opportunistic viral infections. These can be localised, widespread, confined to the skin, or systemic. They can cause mild though disfiguring lesions such as molluscum contagiosum (MCV), or lead to life-threatening infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV-induced squamous cell carcinoma.
