Renal affection in AIDS patients is a theme almost not studied in spite of its frequency. It depends on the direct and indirect action of the virus, and also on the complications and the treatment. The most frequent of the complications is the acute renal insufficiency. The most typical nephropathy associated to the HIV is characterized by a high degree of proteinuria with fast progression to Terminal Renal Insufficiency. There are several forms of glomerulopathies in AIDS, the clinical expression of which ranges from the Nephritic Syndrome to the Nephrotic Syndrome.
