End-stage liver disease - A concern for HIV

People with HIV and hepatitis B or C virus co-infection are more likely to progress to end-stage liver disease (ESLD), than those with HIV alone, and individuals triply infected with all three viruses face the greatest risk. Due to overlapping transmission routes, many people with HIV also have hepatitis B virus hepatitis C virus or both. Over years chronic hepatitis B or C can cause serious liver disease including cirrhosis, liver cancer, and potentially liver failure and the need for a liver transplant. In addition to viral hepatitis, other factors such as drug toxicity and heavy alcohol consumption can also contribute to serious liver damage.
