Pain is common in people infected with HIV and may have diverse aetiologies. In untreated HIV infection, pain becomes more common as the disease progresses and is almost universal among those with advanced acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The chronic nature of HIV disease as well as the many possible causes of pain in those infected mandate a multidisciplinary approach to managing HIV-associated pain.
