Abstract

Concurrent infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) in patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is relatively common. The treatment of co-infected individuals is rather complex because the anti-viral therapy may be associated with drug-resistance, hepatotoxicity and lack of response. Herein, we present a summary of the available compounds and the recent recommendations concerning the therapeutic management of HIV/HBV and HIV/HCV co-infections.
