Liver disease is a growing problem in HIV-infected persons. In those who are able to take antiretroviral therapy, the forms of liver disease have changed and their relative importance has increased. This review focuses on liver disease in HIV-infected persons, caused by hepatitis C virus, hepatitis B virus, or treatment of HIV infection. (Hepatology 2006;43:S221–S229.)
