Pulmonary complications in HIV-infected patients with multiple injuries
One of the main causes of death among patients with polytrauma and HIV infection are lesions of the respiratory system. Severe pulmonary infection in HIV-infected patients with polytrauma can be caused by bacterial, viral and fungal pneumonia. To fulfill the purpose of research, we analyzed the diagnosis and treatment of 74 patients with polytrauma and one of infectious complications that were hospitalized in one of the city hospitals. Clinical manifestations of lung disease in HIV-infected patients with polytrauma differs considerable variety. Etiological spectrum of this disease can be wide, especially given the severe immunosuppression. Opportunistic infections often occur atypically, have a combined character. Lung pathology in HIV-infected progresses quickly, pathological process prone to generalization, severe course is fatal.
