We studied the occurrence of hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) virus co-infections in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals in a tertiary care centre. The occurrence of co-infections in our study was less than in the literature reported from the West. However, routine screening of these co-infections in HIV patients is recommended to avoid possible liver-related morbidity and mortality as a part of improving their quality of life.
