Abstract

EYAL, A.  and  VELLER, M.. HIV and venous thrombotic events. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2009, vol.47, n.2, pp.54-56. ISSN 2078-5151.

HIV has been widely recognised as a prothrombotic condition, with the first case reports having appeared more than 20 years ago. However, surprisingly little evidence is available regarding the mechanisms by which this disease leads to thrombosis. There is little doubt that the relationship is both multifactorial and complex. This review aims to look at the available data and provide a concise summary of the present level of knowledge.
