The urinary tract is not immune to the broad-ranging primary and secondary effects of HIV infection, although it is relatively protected compared with other body systems. The most commonly found genitourinary tract problems in HIV-infected men are prostatitis and prostatic abscess, testicular atrophy, and testicular malignancies and lymphoma, and Kaposi's sarcoma.
