Rhabdomyolysis in an HIV-infected patient with impaired renal function concomitantly treated with rosuvastatin and lopinavir/ritonavir.Antivir Ther. 2011; 16(3):435-7.AT
The authors describe an HIV-infected patient with moderate renal failure receiving combination antiretroviral therapy. Because of dyslipidaemia he was initially treated with pravastatin but developed rhabdomyolysis after a switch to rosuvastatin. With this case we illustrate that statins as well as antiretroviral therapy are susceptible to clinical relevant drug-drug or drug-disease interactions. Knowledge of these interactions is important to provide patients with the best possible care.
