Periodontal health in 200 HIV-positive patients.
J Oral Pathol Med. 1992 Mar; 21(3):124-7.JO

Abstract

Two hundred HIV-positive subjects were surveyed to determine their periodontal health status. Particular attention was given to the occurrence of a severe and rapidly progressing form of periodontal disease designated "HIV-associated periodontitis", which has been reported as being unique to AIDS patients. Among the subjects comprising the cohort, 85 subjects had good gingival health, 59 subjects exhibited gingivitis, 49 cases of adult periodontitis were observed, 5 subjects presented with advance adult periodontitis, and 2 cases of necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis (NUP) were found within the group. The periodontitis of the patients in this survey did not have unique or pathognomonic characteristics which could set their periodontal disease apart from the periodontal disease seen in HIV negative population.
