Abstract Acute hepatitis with lactic acidosis is a life-threatening but reversible toxic effect on mitochondria of HIV-1 nucleoside-analogue treatment. We report fatal portal hypertension, liver failure, and persistent mitochondrial dysfunction in a man aged 65 years with HIV-1 infection who had recovered from nucleoside-analogue-induced acute hepatitis and lactic acidaemia more than 18 months previously. We believe that symptom free patients who receive nucleoside-analogue therapy should have hepatic function constantly monitored, especially those with past or present lactic acidaemia.
