The oral findings in 47 HIV-seropositive children are reported. The patient population consisted of 25 females and 22 males ranging in age from 3 months to 6.5 years. All patients were born to HIV-seropositive mothers. CDC classification of the patients indicated that 26 were P-O, 11 were P-1, and 10 were P-2 (eight of the P-2 patients met CDC criteria for AIDS). Oral candidiasis was the most common finding (six of 26 P-O patients and six of 10 P-2 patients). Only one patient each presented with parotid swelling and gingivitis. Mucosal lesions characteristic of viral infection were not observed in any of the patients.
