LASSO B, Martín. Diagnosis and treatment of opportunistic infections in HIV/AIDS adult patients. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.5, pp.440-460. ISSN 0716-1018.

The following guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of opportunistic infections (OI) in adult HIV/AIDS patients represent the first approach to standardize the management of this patient group in Chile. The guidelines are based on scientific evidence. They intend to serve as a practical and easy-to-use tool for physicians during the process of selecting appropriate diagnostic tests and effective treatments for their patients. They also include the local experience in Chile related to OI in HIV/AIDS patients. Regular up-dates to include new scientific knowledge are proposed.

Keywords : Opportunistic infections; HIV/AIDS; guidelines.
