Presentation, diagnosis, and management of renal failure in patients with HIV infection

Academic Article

Abstract

  • HIV infected patients are at increased risk of developing renal failure when compared to the general population. Renal disease occurs both as a primary manifestation of HIV infection and secondary to complications such as intercurrent illness or drug therapy. Examples of primary HIV renal disease, including HIV associated nephropathy (HIVAN) and immune complex glomerulonephronephritis, and secondary causes of renal failure are reviewed with full discussion about investigation and treatment methods.
