Özet

Infectious diseases physicians taking care of human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients should investigate for the presence of chronic hepatitis caused by hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus infections. This is important as chronic viral hepatitis progresses more rapidly to end-stage liver disease in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients. Once diagnosed, there are effective drugs for the treatment chronic viral hepatitis. Tenofovir containing anti-retroviral therapy effectively suppresses hepatitis B replication. Hepatitis C cure can be achieved with directly acting antiviral agents.
