HIV has become the major health problem in southern Africa. The manifestations of this disease affect every aspect of clinical practice, and the protean symptomatology of HIV infection and AIDS makes a sound approach to the diagnosis of common problems essential. The environment of cost containment within which medical practitioners are required to care for their patients necessitates a thorough understanding of the pathology of these clinical problems in order to facilitate accurate and appropriate diagnosis and therapy. Haematological problems manifest in almost every AIDS patient. The most serious complications are the cytopenias, immune deregulation and haematological malignancies.
