Neoplastic disorders of the skin are commonly encountered in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. As patients survive longer, they are at ever increased risk to acquire one of a number of different malignant neoplasms of the skin. These may be of many different types including epithelial, lymphoreticular, vascular, smooth muscle, and melanocytic. Because of the immunocompromised status of these patients, many of these disorders behave in more aggressive fashions and require more aggressive treatment.
