AbstractAlthough data are conflicting, some studies suggest that HIV-infected patients may have a higher risk for colorectal cancer. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between known and potential HIV specific risk factors on the incidence of precancerous and cancerous lesions found on colonoscopy in HIV-infected individuals. This is a retrospective analysis of clinical data collected on 263 HIV-infected patients.
