GUERRA, Juan Francisco et al. Liver transplantation in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Case report. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.10, pp.1215-1219. ISSN 0034-9887.

Before the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) were considered as having an absolute contraindication for liver transplantation (LT). Considering the increased life expectancy in HIV positive patients under HAART and the improvements in the management of graft recipients, these patients are now suitable for carrying out transplants in selected cases. We report a 26 years old HIV positive male who developed acute liver failure possibly caused by drug induced liver injury who underwent a successful liver transplantation.

Keywords : Antiretroviral Therappy, Highly Active; Chemical and Drug Induced; HIV; Liver Failure, Acute; Liver Injury; Liver Transplantation.
