Tendinitis, TPV?
Oct 1, 2004

Pt successfully treated with TPV/RTV + T-20 + 2 NRTI: huge heel tendinitis! is it TPV? any suggestions? (I hate to stop TPV). Thanks Best regards Stefano Rusconi

Response from Dr. Henry

It is hard to say without more details whether the tendonitis could be due to tipranavir. To my knowledge that has not been a common occurrence. Heal tendonitis or plantar fasciitis is very common in the general population already so pinning down the cause can be tricky sometimes. A good history and physicial as well as knowledge about the treatment details can be of some help. KH
