People living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLWH) are at higher risk of liver fibrosis compared with the general population. As liver fibrosis is independently associated with poor long-term liver related outcomes and mortality,1 early detection is extremely important. Liver biopsy is considered gold standard for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis. However, this invasive procedure is only suitable for a selected group of patients because of the risk of serious complications. We aimed to estimate the concordance between vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) and simple noninvasive liver fibrosis scores-Fibrosis-4 index (FIB4), aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI), and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease fibrosis score (NFS)-in PLWH without viral hepatitis.
