Kidney transplantation in HIV-infected patients.


Journal Article (Review)

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has traditionally been considered an absolute contraindication to solid organ transplantation. With improvements in survival and increases in the prevalence of end-stage liver and kidney disease in HIV-positive patients treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy, many transplant centers have begun to reconsider the role of transplantation in patients with well-controlled HIV infection.
