Summary

  • Ocular manifestations of HIV infection can be divided by anterior or posterior segment involvement and by infectious or noninfectious etiology
  • Posterior-segment infectious diseases are typically the result of immunodeficiency
  • Incidence of ocular opportunistic infections decreased significantly after the introduction of effective ART and are rare where ART is widely available[Palella 1998; Holtzer 1998; Jabs 2007]
