Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is an uncommon manifestation of AIDS despite the frequent involvement of the GI tract by infections, malignancies, and a variety of other disorders. GI bleeding may occur from a variety of causes, some specifically associated with AIDS and others unrelated to immunocompromise; most patients with AIDS who have lower GI bleeding have causes attributable to AIDS-specific lesions. Just as in an incompetent patient, an aggressive approach to diagnosis and treatment of GI bleeding in AIDS patients is warranted.
