Abstract

Introduction: Opportunistic infections are frequent in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients in developed and developing countries. Tuberculosis is one of the most important opportunistic infections. It accelerates the progression of HIV infection and takes place in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining illnesses. In this study, we aimed to investigate the clinical course of tuberculosis developing in HIV-positive patients, and to present our experience with the co-occurrence of these conditions.
