The article discusses the consideration of osteoporosis as a diagnosis in patients with HIV infection. A 50-year-old man, who was given a highly active antiretroviral therapy, was gathered with data on the nature and effects of the treatment. Results indicate that HIV-infected patients are prone to risks of accelerated bone demineralization, however, HIV's association with osteoporosis is uncertain.

    Bone disorders have emerged as a worrisome complication in HIV-infected patients in recent years. It is not clear that HIV infection itself or antiretroviral treatment or both are causes of bone loss. However, most studies have found a high prevalence of osteopenia and osteoporosis in HIV/AIDS...

    Background. The magnitude of the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) since its introduction in non-Western countries is not entirely clear. We studied disease progression among adult patients with advanced human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in the pre-HAART...

    HAART has substantially decreased mortality and morbidity among HIV-infected patients. We retrospectively analyzed morbidity and mortality in a cohort of HIV-infected adult patients with prolonged and frequent follow up (1987-2006). The study was divided in pre-HAART and HAART period for...
