The average life expectancy of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients has improved dramatically following the advent of highly active anti-retroviral therapy. However, this increased life expectancy has led to a greater incidence of non-acquired immune deficiency syndrome related diseases, including cardiovascular diseases and other malignancies. Increased bone fragility is also a significant concern, with the incidence of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures 3- and 2-times more likely, respectively, among HIV-infected patients. Bone mineral density screenings for osteoporosis will therefore become more important as the HIV-infected population ages. Here, we describe six cases of osteoporotic fractures in HIV-infected patients in Korea.
Keywords: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); Osteoporosis; Fracture
