Description

Digital clubbing in a child with HIV infection and lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis/pulmonary lymphocytic hyperplasia (LIP/PLH). Marked lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, and salivary gland enlargement also are observed in many children with LIP/PLH. The clinical course of LIP/PLH is variable. Exacerbation of respiratory distress and hypoxemia can occur in association with intercurrent viral respiratory illnesses. Spontaneous clinical remission sometimes is observed.
