Answer

Persons with HIV infection can and to get oral ulcerations-- often herpes infection, other times aphthous ulcerations (canker sores). Like other minor complications of HIV they tend to occur more commonly among persons with lower CD4 cell counts (in this case below 500, probably more frequently in persons with less than 350 cells).
