Abstract

A unique case of generalized bacillary angiomatosis (BA) in a patient who died of HIV infection is described. Apart from widely spread skin lesions there were also manifestations in the brain, lungs, heart, esophagus and intestine. Gram-negative bacteria were found in the histological sections. Oval and roundish bacteria with a predominantly perivascular location were found electron microscopically in the archives material.
