Rifampin-based tuberculosis treatment can cause subtherapeutic concentrations of protease inhibitors and virologic failure in children receiving antiretroviral therapy. Among 217 children on antiretroviral therapy, tuberculosis cotreatment (in 78) was associated with virologic failure. Ritonavir-based single protease inhibitor antiretroviral therapy regimen predicted virologic failure (adjusted odds ratio 3.7, 95% confidence interval 1.5–8.9, P = 0.004) on multivariate analysis.
