Abstract

Thanks to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), HIV-related mortality has been drastically reduced and HIV infection has become a chronic disease. The HIV-infected population is ageing prematurely. Despite good immunovirological control, HIV causes chronic inflammation and accelerated immunosenes-cence. This clinically manifests as an increased prevalence of age-related comorbidity and frailty occurring earlier than in the general population. The heterogeneity of older HIV-infected adults highlights the rele-vance of identifying those who are at risk of poor health, and frailty may be an effective indicator. The rela-tionship between ageing, HIV infection, antiretroviral treatment, comorbidities and frailty still needs to be clarified. Elderly HIV-infected adults are complex patients who require a specific, global and multidisci-plinary approach.
