Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has traditionally been considered an absolute contraindication to solid organ transplantation. With improvements in survival and increases in the prevalence of end-stage liver and kidney disease in HIV-positive patients treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy, many transplant centers have begun to reconsider the role of transplantation in patients with well-controlled HIV infection. This article reviews the literature on transplantation in HIV-infected patients, with a focus on kidney transplantation in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy.
