Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) is an atypical pulmonary infection and the most common opportunistic infection in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Terminology Classically, PCP was the acronym for pneumocystis carinii pneumo.

Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) is an atypical pulmonary infection and the most common opportunistic infection in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).   Histology demonstrates intralveolar eosinophylic masses with a foamy appearance, due to small cysts within which the pneumocystis jirovecii organism is found.

Pneumocystis pneumonia: Presentation:HIV+ male with cough and shortness or breath. There is hazy, predominantly perihilar mid and upper zone opacification with some interstitial prominence.  A few discrete cysts (pneumatocoeles) measuring up to 1cm can be seen. No pleural effusion. No obvious nodal enlargement.

This case is typical of PCP although due to the marked improvement in treatment of HIV it is far less commonly seen than a few decades ago. The approach to this chest x-ray in an oral exam where the history of HIV is not given would be to first de.

This patient presents with symptoms and a chest X-ray consistent with Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) requiring Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) for treatment. Pneumocystis pneumonia is caused by Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly known as Pneumocystis carinii), a yeast-like fungus, and is seen in patients with immunocompromise; particularly HIV and AIDS. It is a common infection leading to the diagnosis of HIV infection and up to 80% of patients with AIDS will get PCP at some time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an article on June 5, 1981 titled, " Pneumocystis Pneumonia-Los Angeles". It mainly described five men whom were healthy from the ages of 29-36. They were treated at three different hospitals for a strange, new type of pneumonia caused by the Pneumocystis carinii bacteria. A few months after becoming ill, two men died.

1981: The AIDS epidemic officially begins on June 5, when the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report newsletter reports unusual clusters of Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) caused by a form of Pneumocystis carinii in five homosexual men in Los Angeles.

Many researchers were afraid to publish the early articles on AIDS because of the fear it would offend the gay community or excite the homophobs. This is the very first report on the connection between gay men and pneumonia.
