LIMA, Ana Lúcia Lei Munhoz et al. Osteoarticular complications related to HIV infection and highly active antiretroviral therapy. Braz J Infect Dis [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.4, pp.426-429. ISSN 1413-8670.

With the significant increase in life expectancy for HIV-infected patients in the era of high potency antiretroviral therapy, major metabolic changes have been observed due to the prolonged period of the viral infection and the treatment itself. Osteoarticular changes resulting from these processes are mainly reported in long term HIV-infected patients receiving high potency antiretroviral therapy and include osteopenia/osteoporosis, osteonecrosis, carpal tunnel syndrome and adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder.

Keywords : HIV; acquired immunodeficiency syndrome; osteoarticular; antiretroviral agents.
