SUMMARY

Descriptions of the numerous manifestations of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection affecting almost every organ system have abounded in recent publications. Multiple radiological, clinical and postmortem reports have recorded the cerebral, pulmonary, cardiac, renal, rheumatological and gastrointestinal pathologies in HIV-infected individuals, ranging from the bizarre to the mundane. Large-vessel HIV-related vascular manifestations have previously been reported in the surgical literature. We describe and review the manifestations of HIV-associated vasculopathy as it pertains to the cerebral, cardiovascular, mesenteric and renal circulations.
