CLINICAL QUIZ

Facial Lesions on a College Basketball Player
A 20-year-old African-American man reported to his team's training room for evaluation of recurrent facial lesions. He had tried over-the-counter products, with minimal relief from the painful, scarring condition. Close inspection of his skin revealed a symptom pattern that led to the correct diagnosis and alternate treatment strategies.

REVIEW ARTICLES

Metabolic Syndromes Associated With HIV
Mitigating the Side Effects of Drug Therapy
The evolution of HIV infection from terminal disease to chronic condition raises some new medical challenges. State-of-the-art medications and longer life spans can increase the risk of common diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, or hypercholesterolemia. Exercise, dietary changes, and other lifestyle modifications are emerging as key nondrug strategies that allow optimal health and function.
William W. Stringer, MD; Fred R. Sattler, MD
