Abstract

Objectives: To assess the prevalence and risk factors for HBV, HCV and HTLV-I co infection in the Iranian HIV positive Injecting Drug Users (IDU) patients admitted in hospital. Methodology: Analyses were based on 154 male IDU patients admitted in Infectious disease ward of Razi Hospital, Ahwaz, Iran, from April 2001 to March 2003. All of them had been tested for HIV infection (Elisa-antibody &Western blot), HBV surface antigen, HCV antibody and HTLV-1 antibody. Results: One hundred and four patients (67.53) were identified as HIV infected. Among HIV infected, HB surface antigen, HCV antibody and HTLV-I antibody were positive in 44.23 and 74.04 and 16.33 patients respectively. HCV/HBV/HIV and HCV/HBV/HIV/HTLV-1 co infection were 20.20 and 8.65 respectively. Conclusions: Co infection with HBV or HCV or HTLV-1 is common among hospitalized HIV-infected IDU patients in the region of study. HIV disease outcomes appear to be adversely affected by HBV/HCV/HTLV-I co infection, so identification of these viral infections is recommended as routine tests for this population.
