Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The syndrome of acquired immunodeficiency (AIDS) has previously been described. Originally thought to affect homosexuals and drug abusers exclusively, the disorder has also been observed in women associated with drug abuse, hemophiliacs, Haitians and, rarely, in heterosexual men. Several hundred cases have been reported in the United States whereas only a small number have been reported elsewhere. We report the first case of AIDS in Israel in a heterosexual male who developed the opportunistic infections of esophageal candidiasis and pneumocystis caranii pneumonia as well as the ischemic retinopathy which has come to be associated with the syndrome.
