[Preliminary study of pneumocystis carinii pneumonia diagnosed by induced expectoration in HIV positive patients in Dakar].
Dakar Med. 1993; 38(2):115-8.DM

Abstract

Rapid noninvasive diagnosis of Pneumocystis carinii from induced liquefied sputum is a very easy and not costly method. It was using for a first time at the Infectious Diseases Department at Dakar in 27 HIV seropositive patients from July to November 1992. Six cases of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) was diagnosed, with a prevalence of 22.2%. In this study PCP was found in both HIV-1 and HIV-2 patients. Clinical and radiological aspects are not specific. PCP was also found in patients with CD4 below than 200 per cubic millimeter. Co-infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is possible.
