Deficits in Bone Architecture and Strength in Children Living With HIV on Antiretroviral Therapy.
Background: Reduced bone mineral mass by dual x-ray absorptiometry is reported in children living with HIV (CLWH), but few studies of bone microarchitecture, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, have been conducted. Here, we compare bone architecture and strength in black South African CLWH and uninfected control children by peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT).
