Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis in AIDS-associated cryptosporidiosis. More than an incidental finding?


:A 34-year-old man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) developed pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis associated with an intestinal infection with Cryptosporidium organisms. The pneumatosis resolved upon treatment of the cryptosporidiosis with paromomycin and clofazimine. Four other cases of benign pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis in adults with AIDS and associated cryptosporidiosis have been reported, which suggests that cryptosporidial infection may be pathogenetically involved in the pneumatosis and not merely incidental.
