[Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) in HIV antibody-positive subjects]


Minerva Stomatol. 1991 Nov;40(11):695-9. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

The paper reports five cases of acute ulcero-necrotic gingivitis in AbHIV-positive subjects and stresses that the frequency of this pathology in the AbHIV-positive population is 0.67% (3.3% if only the homosexual population is taken into consideration) compared to 0.02-0.08% in the normal population. These findings may therefore suggest an association between AUNG and HIV-1 infection.
