Resumo: Renal disease is a relatively common complication in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected patients and has become the fourth leading cause of death in AIDS individuals, immediately following septicaemia, pneumonia and hepatic disease. HIV associated nephropathy, HIV associated immune complex renal disease and HIV associated thrombotic microangiopathy are the main causes of chronic renal failure in this population. The authors report a case of a 44 year-old black male, HIV 1 infected with low CD4 count, admitted to the nephrology department with non nephrotic proteinuria and renal failure. Renal biopsy revealed a focal segmental glomerulosclerosis collapsing variant. The patient was treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy and an ACE inhibitor and, at 3 months of follow-up, has recovered his renal function. This case illustrates the efficacy of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on HIV associated nephropathy. Prospective studies are needed to evaluate HAART in the treatment of HIV associated nephropathies.
