An increasing number of primary care physicians will be called on to care for patients with AIDS as the epidemic of HIV infection progresses in the United States. In this article, the more common conditions responsible for significant morbidity and mortality in patients with AIDS have been discussed. It should be apparent that many of these conditions are treatable, either palliatively or with curative intent. Primary care physicians who are familiar with the diagnostic evaluation and therapy of these diseases will therefore be well equipped to provide vital medical care to severely immunocompromised patients with HIV infection.
