Abstract

OBJECTIVE
To discuss the clinical value of ultrasound interventional biopsy in the diagnosis of AIDS related diseases.

METHODS
Ultrasound interventional biopsy was performed on different lesions of organs in 366 cases of AIDS patients in our hospital from June 2012 to May 2015. Histopathological and immunohistochemical studies were conducted for samples of the biopsies.

RESULTS
Total success rate of the biopsies was about 98.4% (360/366) with the failure rate of 1.6% (6/366). The incidence of complications related to the biopsies was about 2.5% (9/366). No medical personnel participated in ultrasound interventional biopsy procedures suffered from infection.

CONCLUSIONS
Ultrasound interventional biopsy is safe and convenient to be performed on AIDS patients complicated with various opportunistic infections or carcinomas, with a rather high success rate and few postoperative complications. Ultrasound interventional biopsy has a great clinical significance in early diagnosis of AIDS complications.
