Abstract
HIV infected patients are at increased risk of developing renal failure whe n compared to the general population. Renal disease occurs both as a primar y manifestation of HIV infection and secondary to complications such as int ercurrent illness or drug therapy. Examples of primary HIV renal disease, i ncluding HIV associated nephropathy (HIVAN) and immune complex glomerulonep hronephritis, and secondary causes of renal failure are reviewed with full discussion about investigation and treatment methods.
