Abstract

This retrospective study reports the results of surgical lung biopsies in 21 patients infected by HIV. Diagnostic was assessed by surgical lung biopsies in 66% of cases with a 5% immediate post-operative mortality and a 80% survival rate after one month. Therapeutic management was modified in 38% of cases. These results are in concordance with previously published literature and emphasize that such a procedure should only be performed after other diagnostic procedures, including at least a bronchial endoscopy associated to a BAL and/or transbronchial biopsies.
