(X
^{2}
+ 1) (Y
^{2}
+ 1) = (Z

+ 1)
Does there exist an infinite number of solutions to the above equation?

From the equation comes
(xy)^2 + x^2 + y^2 = z^2
(xy)^2 + n^2 + 2nxy is a square for each value of n
Then when y=2x^2 or x=2y^2 z^2 will be square
For ex x=7 2x^2=98 Then if y=98, z will be square. For ex y=98
(7^2+1)(98^2+1)=693^2+1
