Acute and chronic kidney disease are major complications of HIV infection and occur as a complication of HIV infection, other co-morbid disease and infections and as a consequence of therapy of HIV infection and its complications. The classic involvement of the kidney by HIV infection is HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN), occurring typically in young adults of African ancestry  in association with APOL1 high risk variants.
