HIV-infected people are at increased risk of diseases caused by infection with infectious agents such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other mycobacteria, hepatitis C, hepatitis, B, Pneumocystis carinii, cryptococci, fungi, and human cytomegalovirus. While diseases caused by many of these pathogens are less common today in HIV infected patients receiving HAART, co-infection with tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and hepatitis B (HBV) remain significant causes of illness and death among people living with HIV, especially in regions where the risk of co-infection is high.
