Loss of cellular immunity accompanying the progressive HIV/AIDS disease, results in altered clinical picture and outcome of traditional infections as well as severe and often lethal illness caused by facultative pathogens.

Liver biopsy has a diagnostic value beside the serology and bacteriology and may give therapeutic consequences.
