Abstract

HIV enteropathy, first described in 1984, is a change in intestinal structure and function in HIV-infected persons. It is a syndrome without an identified malignancy or pathogen other than HIV. Although the list of diarrhea-causing pathogens has grown, HIV enteropathy still occurs in the highly active antiretroviral therapy era. This report presents a case of HIV enteropathy and provides a review of the current literature.
