A set of definitions and diagnostic criteria for the more common oral features of human immunodeficiency virus infection were prepared as the result of a consensus reached by a group of dental and medical clinicians, epidemiologists, and other experts. These are intended for use in epidemiologic surveys, where the presumptive diagnoses are recommended, and in clinical care, pathogenesis and therapy studies, where the definitive diagnoses are appropriate.
