GARCIA, Paola; MUNEVAR, Mario; BENAVIDES, Carlos  y  CONTRERAS, Kateir. First kidney transplant in Colombia in a patient with HIV infection. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2015, vol.40, n.2, pp.162-165. ISSN 0120-2448.

Infection by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has increased its prevalence worldwide. One third of patients develop renal function involvement and might require renal replacement therapy. The highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has improved survival of patients with this infection and this has motivated that this population be now considered for entering a transplant list. We report the case of a patient with chronic kidney disease secondary to toxicity by indinavir, who spent four years in hemodialysis and receives renal graft from living donor, has been followed up for 7 years with favorable evolution, without rejection, opportunistic infections or cardiovascular complications, and is being managed with HAART achieving optimal virological and immunological control. HIV infection is not a contraindication for renal transplantation and contributes to improving quality of life, morbidity and mortality in this population. (Acta Med Colomb 2015; 40: 162-165).
