Bacillary angiomatosis in a pregnant patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

Obstet Gynecol. 1992 May;79(5 ( Pt 2)):818-9.


Bacillary angiomatosis, a cutaneous lesion newly recognized to affect patients with AIDS, may resemble Kaposi sarcoma. It is presumed to be an infectious process caused by the gram-negative bacilli associated with cat-scratch fever. We present a case of bacillary angiomatosis in a pregnant AIDS patient.
