PMID: 35266800.


Background In the mid-1990s, the development of combination antiretroviral therapy converted HIV infection into a chronic condition, with newly diagnosed patients now living longer than the general population. HIV affects both the central and peripheral nerve systems, resulting in a variety of clinical problems, including peripheral neuropathy, which is a common neurological consequence. Despite this, there is a scarcity of information on the extent of peripheral sensory neuropathy and its underlying factors in Ethiopia, necessitating this study.
