Abstract:

Opportunistic infections (OIs) are infections that occur due to an immune system that does not involve invasive, but can affect conditions that occur in people with a low immune system in people with HIV / AIDS. Giardia lamblia is one of the intestinal protozoa that exist in humans and animals, whereas in individuals with immunodeficiency, it can be chronic diarrhea, thus becoming dehydrated and malnourished which can increase mortality and morbidity in HIV patients. The design of this study was observational descriptive on 50 fecal samples of HIV / AIDS patients. Giardia lamblia research was carried out microscopically with Ziehl Neelsen staining. The results obtained were 1 respondents (2%) tested positive with Giardia lamblia. From the results of this study it was concluded that HIV / AIDS sufferers in West Sumatra with a CD4 cell count of ≤200 were found to be infected with Giardia lamblia
