AIDS, HIV, Oral, Leukoplakia

This HIV-positive patient presented with signs of advanced oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) on the lateral border of his tongue. Being that HIV reduces immunologic activity, the intraoral environment is a prime target for chronic secondary infections and inflammatory processes, including OHL, which is due to the Epstein-Barr virus under immunosuppressed conditions.
