Abstract

OBJECIIVE: To report the clinical presentation and response to antimicrobial therapy of presumed bacillary angiomatosis in an AIDS patient. DESIGN: Single case report. SETTING: A 1058-bed, university teaching hospital. PATIENT: 28-year-old HIV-positive man (T4 lymphocyte count <3/mm3), who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1984. RESULTS: The skin lesions responded promptly to treatment with doxycycline and erythromycin. CONCLUSIONS: Bacillary angiomatosis is an infection that occurs with endstage AIDS. Skin lesions have recognizable characteristics and respond promptly to appropriate antibiotic therapy.
