ABSTRACT
The authors offer insights regarding complications of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in sub-Saharan, Africa. They stress that undiagnosed active tuberculosis is the significant clinical complication among patients who received ART care. They note that subclinical tuberculosis exists as a spectrum that ranges from sterile acquired immunity to severe overt disease. They further discuss the medical management of tuberculosis.
