Özet

Pneumocystis jiroveci is the most common and serious opportunistic infection in acquired immune deficiency syndrome patients. It is detected in approximately 80% of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected individuals. In this paper, we present a case of pneumocystic jiroveci pneumonia in a 32-year-old HIV-infected patient who committed suicide. We also present histopathological findings in the lung and aim to draw attention to suicidal tendency in HIV-infected individuals.
