Hepatitis C virus infection is common in people with HIV and represents an increasingly important public health problem. Thus, although there remains a considerable amount of uncertainty about whom to treat and the best way to treat, providers must use available information generated chiefly from patients without HIV to manage HCV infection in coinfected patients. Future efforts should include prospective studies that demonstrate the natural history and optimal management of HIV/HCV-coinfected patients, including the feasibility of liver transplantation.
