Malaria in HIV-Infected patients: a series of cases in a peruvian hospital.

[Malaria in HIV-Infected patients: a series of cases in a peruvian hospital]. Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica. 2019 Jul-Sep;36(3):520-524 Authors: Montenegro-Idrogo JJ, Vargas-Gonzales R, Sihuincha M Abstract The clinical signs of malaria in HIV patients may vary depending on the immunological status of the patient. Nationally, evidence regarding co-infection is scarce. This research describes four cases from a hospital in Iquitos, Peru, of patients diagnosed with HIV infection and a positive blood test for malaria. Two of these patients had Plasmodium falciparum infection, and two had Plasmodium vivax infection. One of the patients was in the AIDS stage with poor adherence to combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), and the other three were in the early stages and not receiving cART.

Therefore, it is important to understand how current first-line antiretroviral therapies (ART) might impact Plasmodium infection in these regions. Here, we describe the effect of 18 antiretroviral compounds and of first-li...
