A homosexual man with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome had an
unusually wide array of opportunistic infections. Despite antibiotic
treatment over a period of two and a half years, the patient died.
Perianal herpetic ulcers, oral candidiasis, cytomegalovirus infection,
and disseminated infections with both Histoplasma capsulatum and
Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare were diagnosed during illness. An
autopsy revealed invasive pulmonary aspergillosis and a cerebellar
lesion caused by cytomegalovirus. The latter was probably responsible
for the patient's gait disturbance.
