HIV is the cause of the spectrum of disease known as HIV/AIDS. HIV is a retrovirus that primarily infects components of the human immune system such as CD4 + T cells, macrophages and dendritic cells. It directly and indirectly destroys CD4 + T cells. HIV is a member of the Complications: Opportunistic infections, tumors. Syphilis is an infection caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Most new cases of syphilis are sexually acquired. The clinical manifestations depend upon the stage of disease. Studies performed in the pre-antibiotic era permit a relatively complete understanding of the .

  HIV Pathogenesis. The pathogenesis of HIV disease, from a virological and immunological standpoint, has been studied intensively and defined progressively over the past 20 years.   Opportunistic infections (OIs) are infections that occur more frequently and are more severe in people with weakened immune systems, including people with HIV. OIs are less common now than they were in the early days of HIV because better treatments reduce the amount of HIV in a person’s body and keep a person’s immune system stronger.

The textbook, now in its 30th edition, includes a general discussion of the pathophysiology of HIV infection, organ system pathology of AIDS, and descriptions of the opportunistic infections and neoplasms associated with AIDS, and a general discussion of issues, including safety and education, related to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the result of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection damaging the cell-mediated immune system. A wide range of opportunistic infections (OI) and tumours develop; additionally, HIV directly damages some by: HIV transmission can occur in the absence of cervix and uterus.

In males, the minimally keratinized inner penile foreskin is the most vulnerable to HIV infection, and though circumcision may reduce the risk for transmission, HIV infection can occur in the absence of foreskin, most likely through penile urethra. Pathology of AIDS. HIV infection passes through a series of steps or stages before it turns into AIDS.

These stages of infection as outlined in by the Centers for Disease Control and. PATHOGENESIS OF AIDS how does HIV cause AIDS. DEFINITIONS HIV: human immunodeficiency virus HIV is a member of the lentivirus family, a subgroup of retroviruses, RNA viruses that replicate via a DNA intermediate AIDS: acquired immunodeficiency syndrome AIDS is defined by a loss of CD4 T lymphocytes or the.

HIV-related cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a main cause of morbidity and mortality among HIV-infected persons, despite potent antiretroviral therapy (ART).

The diagnosis and treatment of HIV and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) have become more and more complicated as the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease has.

HIV is commonly transmitted via unprotected sexual activity, blood transfusions, hypodermic needles, and from mother to child. Upon acquisition of the virus, the virus replicates inside and kills T helper cells, which are required for almost all adaptive immune responses.

There is an initial period of influenza-like illness, and then a latent, asymptomatic phase. When the CD4 lymphocyte count falls below. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is generally characterized by inefficient viral transmission; an acute phase of intense viral replication and dissemination to lymphoid tissues; a chronic, often asymptomatic phase of sustained immune activation and viral replication; and an advanced phase of marked depletion of CD4 T cells that leads to acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
