The Object of this study was to determine whether HIV infection is associated with decreased bone mineral density (BMD). BMD was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry at total body, lumbar spine, and hip in 45 men with HIV infection and compared with sex, age, and weight-matched controls. Repeat scans were performed after a mean interval of 15 months in 21 patients to determine whether there were detectable losses of BMD. Compared with controls, the HIV patients had marginally lower BMD… CONTINUE READING
