HIV-associated pulmonary diseases are mainly related with infection. They remain as a major cause of morbidity. Bacterial pneumonia and acute bronchitis are frequent, although Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) is the most common opportunistic infection in developed countries between patients with poor immune control. The incidence of non-AIDS defining malignancies (lung cancer) has increased. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death among non-AIDS-related neoplasms.
