Introduction: Cardiac complications of HIV infection tend to occur late in the disease or are associated with related therapies and are therefore becoming more prevalent as therapy and longevity improve. Materials and Methods: The study was undertaken to study the common cardiovascular complications in Indian HIV patients and to their association with the CD4+ T-cell count. Observations and Conclusion: Prevalence of cardiac abnormality in our study was 24%. The abnormalities included LVDD (22%), pulmonary hypertension (12%), DCMP (12%), pericardial effusion (7%), left ventricular systolic dysfunction (5%), and right ventricular dysfunction (1%).
