Abstract: 
Background: Individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are often co-infected with other pathogens, especially hepatitis viruses. HCV and GBV-C/HGV are blood-borne viruses that are highly prevalent among HIV/AIDS patients. The aims of this study were the evaluation of Hepatitis G Virus in among HIV Positive patients and GBV-C/HGV affect in the HIV disease progression.Methods: One hundred and fifty HIV-infected patients (92 men and 58 women) were included in this study. Patients were categorized into four different high-risk groups: intravenous drug users (n=48), hemophiliacs (n=45), homosexuals (n=32) and heterosexuals (n=25). In addition, these patients are separated with history of kidney (n=35), liver (n=60) diseases and history of transfusion (n=55). RNA was extracted from 100 ml of serum or plasma using the RNX plus kit. Detection of GBV-C/HGV-RNA and HCV-RNA were performed using reverse transcription and nested PCR.Results: GBV-C/HGV-RNA and HCV-RNA were found in 26.66% and 30% patients, respectively. The prevalence of GBV-C/HGV in intravenous drug users, hemophiliacs, homosexual and heterosexuals, history of kidney disease and history of liver disease group was 31.25%, 28.88 %, 21.88%, 20%, 28.58% and 25% respectively.Conclusion: The prevalence of GBV-C and HCV in HIV infected case varied in different groups. Our study shows a significant relationship between coinfection with GBV-C and HIV Virus, because after 4 years slows the progression of HIV disease and liver diseases in HIV-infected patients.
