Abstract

Highly active antiretroviral therapy has dramatically reduced morbidity and mortality among patients who are HIV-positive. A retrospective review of the authors’ data separated subjects into cohorts based on HIV status and matched them for age and gender. The authors’ data reveal a higher fraction of venous ulcers compared with a lower fraction of pressure ulcers in the seropositive population.
