Among adults with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) has previously been reported to occur in approximately 10% of children with HIV-infection. The frequency of CKD, its causes, and its natural history in children and adolescents with HIV-infection have not been systematically studied, particularly in the era of new anti-retroviral medications. The primary aim of this study is to determine the how common pediatric HIV-infected individuals have evidence of persistent proteinuria and CKD.
