Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal


The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a significant health problem. Patients with this disease develop unusual infections and neoplasms, many within the gastrointestinal tract. Of the 66 AIDS patients seen over a three-year period at Henry Ford Hospital, 25 patients had AIDS-related gastrointestinal disease, with one death attributed to this cause. The radiologic findings and pathologic correlation of this experience are presented.
