OBJECTIVES HIV prevalence among older people is on the increase. The aim of this study was to evaluate the epidemiological and clinical features at diagnosis and survival of older patients. METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of the data of 558 newly diagnosed antiretroviral-naïve patients between January 1998 and December 2008. Patients were divided into two groups according to their age at diagnosis: ≥50 years (n=103) and 18-49 years (n=455). RESULTS The most common risk factor for… CONTINUE READING

Older patients were more likely to suffer from hypertension ( 33.0% vs. 5.1% , p<0.0005 ) , cardiovascular disease ( 20.4% vs. 2.9% , p<0.0005 ) , neurological disorders ( 11.7% vs. 5.5% , p=0.02 ) , renal dysfunction ( 12.6% vs. 5.3% , p=0.01 ) , and infections ( 66.0% vs. 49.7% , p=0.003 ) than their younger counterparts , and to have more hospital admissions during follow - up ( 47.5% vs. 19.6% , p<0.0005 ) .
