CONCLUSION: The following are conclusions from the study. 1. Cardiac Autonomic dysfunction is common in HIV infected patients, the probability of which is significantly increased with progression to AIDS. 2. The HIV positive asymptomatic subject have higher prevalence of QTc Prolongation compared to HIV negative subjective and as they moved to AIDS, the prevalence of QTc, prolongation increases. 3. A significant correlation is present between autonomic dysfunction and QTc prolongation. This makes QTc measurement as a reliable parameter of indicating the presence of cardiac autonomic dysfunction, but further studies are necessary to firmly establish the relationship between automatic dysfunction and QTc / prolongation.
