Abstract

The inpatient presentation of the HIV infected patient has changed over the years. From the early years when patients presented with accumulating opportunistic infections that led to an early demise to the HAART era with reports of dramatic decreases in opportunistic infections and improvements in life expectancy, the evolution of inpatient HIV care has been a challenge to the clinician. In the HAART era the presentation of the HIV inpatient has diversified and in many ways is more challenging than the management of the HIV inpatient in the pre-HAART era. We will discuss the changing dynamics of HIV inpatient care from socioeconomic changes to changes in the presentation and reasons for hospitalization.
