En yksek mortaliteyi oluturan durumlar frsat enfeksiyonlardr. Bu durum AIDS hastalarnda frsat enfeksiyonlara ynelik tarama ve profilaksi uygulanmasn gerekli klmtr. Tberkloz ile HIV birliktelii uzun zamandr bilinmekte ve prog-nozu ktletirmektedirler. PCP ise gnmzde man-tar olarak kabul edilen P. jirovecii etkenli frsat bir pnmonidir. Covid -19 pandemisi ile birlikte de AIDS hastalarnda yeni bir mortalite sebebi ortaya kmtr. AIDS hastalarnn bu frsat enfeksiyonlara kar taranmas, profilaktik tedavi almas ve erkenden tedavi almalar hayati nem tamaktadr.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), while PCP (Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia), tuber-culosis, CMV (Cytomegalovirus) and candidiasis are the OIs (opportunistic infections) occurring due to immune deficiency. OIs, and bacterial pneumonias in particular, are the most common causes of mortality, which makes the screening and prophylactic therapy for OIs necessary. The synergy between tuberculosis and HIV has long been known, and worsens the prognosis. PCP is an OI that is caused by a fungus named P. jiroveci. COVID-19 has emerged as a new cause of death among AIDS patients. Screening and prophylactic therapy for Ols is vital for patients with AIDS, however, mortality may be high due to delays in screening and prophylaxis in those whose HIV positivity is detected coincidentally. We report here on a patient who applied to our hospital with suspected COVID-19 pneumonia who was found during follow-up to be HIV positive with PCP and pulmonary tuber-culosis.
