: The seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) in HIV-infected patients in China has never been reported. Thus, anti-HEV in HIV-infected patients recruited in five provinces in China was tested. The seroprevalence of HEV was 39.7%, which was higher than that in the general population (23.5%). HEV infection might be a frequent cause of hepatitis in HIV-infected patients.
