Results- 52/295 (17.62 %) showed proteinuria.43/52 (82.7 %) had 24 hour urine protein between 500-1000 mg/d while proteinuria >1g/d was seen in 9/52 (17.3 %) cases. Lower mean CD4 count were seen in proteinuria cases, as compared to those without renal involvement (221.7245.72 cells/mm3 versus 334.22324 cells/mm3, p value
