TO ASSESS ULTRASONOGRAPHIC FEATURES OF THE KIDNEY IN HIV POSITIVE PATIENTS
Keywords:Ultrasonographic, kidney & HIV.
Background & Method: The present study was carried out among inpatients of medical wards of Department of Medicine, Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences, Dewas which includes 72 consecutive HIV/AIDS patients who consented to participate in the study were screened for renal disease using standard clinical and laboratory criteria.
Result: Correlation of CD4 cell count in patients with renal injury and abnormal USG finding. Patients of HIV with renal injury showed abnormal Ultrasonography finding (increase kidney size) were present in 06 patients out of 28. The number of abnormal USG (Increased kidney size) was not related to CD4 count. The correlation of abnormal USG (Increased kidney size) with CD4 cell count is <200 cell/mm3 was also statistically not significant. (P-value >0.05).
Conclusion: Average systolic and diastolic BP were found to be significantly higher in patients with renal injury indicating higher chances of renal dysfunction among those with both systolic and diastolic hypertension. Among the group of patients with renal injury, a total of 28.6 % cases were found to have abnormal renal findings on ultrasound examination. No relation was detected between CD4 count and abnormal renal findings on ultrasound.
