Renal dysfunction in the setting of HIV-1 infection and antiretroviral therapy is an increasingly more common event that has a significant impact on the clinical management of HIV-1-infected patients. The present review examines the epidemiology of renal dysfunction in HIV-1-infected patients, the spectrum of renal injury associated with HIV-1 infection and its treatment, and the various forms of presentation seen in daily clinical practice. As a practical contribution to the management of HIV-1-associated renal dysfunction, guidelines are proposed for assessing the most common kidney-related problems and their management in daily practice.
