Abstract

Between October 1984 and December 1987, 219 patients who fulfilled the criteria for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), as set out by the Centers for Disease Control, Georgia, were seen at St. Mary's Hospital, London. The most common otolaryngological manifestations of the disease in these patients were oral candidiasis (60%), oesophageal candidiasis (16%), persistent generalized lymphadenopathy (27%) and Kaposi's sarcoma (26%). Our management of the patients is described.
