Resum
Background: Hypovitaminosis D is highly prevalent among HIV-infected patients. Since hypovitaminosis D is a secondary cause of low bone mineral density (BMD), we assessed its prevalence and associated factors in HIV-infected patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis, compared with HIV-infected patients with normal BMD. Materials & methods: Serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25[OH]D) concentration were collected from 149 HIV-infected subjects with low BMD and 36 with normal BMD from April to October, 2010. ...
