Giant molluscum contagiosum: an unusual presenting complaint of paediatric HIV disease.
Trop Doct. 2015 Apr; 45(2):148-50.TD

Abstract

We report a widely disseminated, disfiguring facial molluscum contagiosum (MC) as a presenting complaint in an 11-year-old girl secondary to human immune-deficiency virus infection. A biopsy specimen demonstrated lobulated epidermal growth consisting of keratinocytes with large intracytoplasmic eosinophilic inclusion bodies. The patient was treated with highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). The extent of MC in our patient was remarkable and subsequently improved dramatically after starting HAART. Normally MC does not similarly respond in patients with AIDS.
