It’s a zoonotic disease thataffects people who have beeninfected by the humanimmunodeficiency virus (HIV). AIDS Early symptoms are nonspecific pain, fever and sore throat due toConcurrent symptoms and swollen glandsprogressive seriousness: Dry cough that does not go away. Swollen joints. Unexplained fever.
CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS symptoms fever most important in patients with Weight’s HIV loss Cough and less cavitation, hemoptys Less frequent inflammation and i irritationPhysical examination endobronchial in patient with Doesn’t help distinguish pulmonary it from other lung tuberculosis in infections general

TUBERCULOS AIDS IS Fungal infections - common Expectoration (oral or vaginal) white patches in the mouth hemoptysis NauseaChest’s pain Severe headachetuberculous tuberculouspneumonitis pleuritis Lymphoma
In patients with HIV recommended SPUTUM SAMPLES it increases the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosisAcute bacterial pneumonia common in HIV patients differentiates pulmonary tuberculosis
Patients with AIDS tuberculin test may be negative even if they have theTB diseasePatients withTUBERCULOSIS
The differential diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis in childrenwith HIV includePneumonia bacterial diffuse interstitial pneumonitisneumocystis pneumonia
WHY IS CONFUSED TBC with AIDS? TBC Increases accelerates disease’s progression viral load HIV AIDSaffects the clinical presentation andevolution of tuberculosis CD4’s declineincreases the rate of recurrence of TBfavors forms of extrapulmonary TB

Tests are requested AFB, PCRand ELISA to discard possible diagnosis:-Pulmonary Tuberculosis- HIV infection. Test Proven positive BAAR negative ELISA test PCR negative.
Diagnosis: Pulmonary tuberculosis The diagnosis is strengthened by the knowledge of the patient’s place of origin, as is the Ucayali region, which is known as one of the places with the highest incidence of the disease and diagnosed Also the plate or chest radiography and gives a prior diagnosis of the disease but has to be checked with biochemical tests, both to be certain of the diagnosis and to rule out other diseases with similar signs and symptoms such as infection with HIV
