The ultrasonographic findings of 43 patients with AIDS and ARC were analyzed. In 63% an enlarged liver, in 66% an enlarged spleen, partially with focal lesions, and in 21% enlarged abdominal lymph nodes were diagnosed. The typical parenchymal lesions of the kidney (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) were not observed. Abdominal ultrasound is the first diagnostic procedure to perform in patients with AIDS and ARC with the suspicion of abdominal pathology. With additional thin needle puncture of the lesions a histological verification of the pathologic findings is possible.
