Liver involvement with opportunistic infections and neoplasms is a well-recognized component of AIDS, affecting most patients. The cause of hepatic disease in these patients may be divided into hepatitis, granulomatous disease, mass lesions, vascular lesions, hepatotoxic drugs, and nonspecific findings. With a rational approach, most patients with AIDS and liver disease can be diagnosed and treated in a cost-effective manner with low morbidity.
