As life expectancy of patients infected by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has prolonged, they are treated by physicians of different specialities. This article focuses on urologic complications of HIV infection. Urinary tract infections in HIV positive patients are more frequent than in otherwise healthy individuals and less common microorganisms can be involved. Sexually transmitted diseases are a commonplace. Certain malignancies of the genitourinary tract are more often diagnosed in HIV positive than in HIV negative population. Impairment of kidney function is usually caused by HIV-associated nephropathy. Acute renal failure can also occur. Indinavir causes urinary stones formation. Male circumcision is an effective method of HIV transmission prevention.
