To describe the elementary lesions, to list the kidney pathologies, to determine the kidney reach frequency and to establish an interrelationship enters the gravity of the kidney reach and the kidney's structure at the ultrasound scan. It was about a prospective survey of ten (10) month, realized in the Departments of radiology of the Teaching Hospitals of Lomé (CHU Tokoin and Campus), concerning 281 patients aged of 18 to 71 years whose HIV serology is positive. The radiological frequency of the HIV/AIDS infection noted during our period of survey was of 3.27% (281/8583). The modal age group was of 30-40 years (32.38%). The female representativeness was 56.92% against 43.08% of men. The drivers (23.13%) follow-ups of the tradesmen were the more touched. The bachelors were more exposed (38.43%). The kidney increased size in 31.85% of the cases. The majority of the patients (88.19%) was at the echographic advanced stage of the renal suffering of which 70.08% were at the III stage. The length of the kidneys was generally normal (74.38%), their width was normal in 53.38% of the cases and increased in 44.42% of the cases. As for the thickness, it was increased in general (71.88%). The kidney suffering (49.03%) was the most dominant pathology. The wealth of the kidney pathology associated to the infection of the HIV/AIDS should bring the practitioners to integrate the ultrasound scan in the balance of this affection.
