Abstract

Immunodeficiency and prolonged antiretroviral treatment along with common risk factors including older age, male gender and high body mass index might conduce to greater incidence of hypertension. The purpose of this review was to summarize recent evidence of the increased cardiovascular risk in these patents linking HIV infection to hypertension.
