Skin HIV Patient with these skin lesions

A 39 year old married heterosexual male presented with extensive purpuric macules, papules, and lichenoid plaques scattered over his skin and mucocutaneous surfaces for one year. The lesions were larger in both his groins, and were associated with lymphedema of his penis and scrotum.




His serology for the HIV-1 virus was positive. Biopsy from the lesions showed a marked proliferation of abnormal vascular channels forming irregular spindle-cell bundles.His absolute CD4 count was 247 cmm (337.00-1513.00) and CD8 3283 cmm (174.00 - 1240.00). Viral markers for hepatitis B and C were negative. He subsequently developed pulmonary and peritoneal effusions and died 3 months later of cardiopulmonary arrest. What is the most likely cause of this condition?


A) Cryptosporidiosis
B) Cytomegalovirus
C) Human Papilloma Virus
E) Epstein-Barr Virus
F) Mycobacterium Ovium
G) Human Herpes Virus 8
H) Pneumocystis carinii
