  • Cytomegalovirus disease (other than liver, spleen, or nodes)
  • Encephalopathy, HIV-related
  • Herpes simplex: chronic ulcers (>1 month in duration), or bronchitis, pneumonitis, or esophagitis
  • Histoplasmosis, disseminated or extrapulmonary
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis, pulmonary or extrapulmonary
  • Isosporiasis, chronic intestinal (>1-month duration)
  • Kaposi sarcoma
  • Lymphoma, Burkitt, immunoblastic, or primary central nervous system
  • Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) or Mycobacterium kansasii, disseminated or extrapulmonary
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis, pulmonary or extrapulmonary
  • Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly carinii) pneumonia (PCP)
  • Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML)
  • Salmonella septicemia, recurrent (nontyphoid)
  • Toxoplasmosis of brain
  • Mycobacterium, other species or unidentified species, disseminated or extrapulmonary
  • Wasting syndrome caused by HIV (involuntary weight loss >10% of baseline body weight) associated with either chronic diarrhea (two or more loose stools per day for ≥1 month) or chronic weakness and documented fever for ≥1 month
