Enteric protozoan parasites remain the most commonly encountered parasitic diseases in HIV infected patients. Opportunistic protozoal infections that infect GIT most commonly and cause diarrhea in HIV-infected patients are cryptosporidium parvum, microsporidia and Isospora belli. Developing an infection with enteric protozoan parasites is dependent on absolute CD4+ cell counts, with lower counts associated with more severe, more atypical disease, and a greater risk of disseminated disease. We present histopathological features in a patient, where all three parasitic infections co-existed in HIV infected patient, who was under antitubercular therapy in addition to antiretroviral therapy and herpes zoster infection being treated by acyclovir.
