Abstract

The epidemiology of cardiac complications related to HIV including cardiomyopathy, increased left ventricular mass, myocarditis, pericardial effusion, endocarditis, and malignancy are discussed. A large number of HIV-infected individuals will present with cardiac complications in the next decade as chronic viral infection, co-infections, drug therapy, and immunosuppression affect the heart. Understanding the nature and course of cardiac illness related to HIV infection will allow appropriate monitoring, early intervention and therapy, and will provide a baseline to evaluate the effects of new therapeutic regimens such as highly active antiretroviral therapy on the cardiovascular system.
