      Objectives: To identify the factors associated with intermittent viremia in PLWHA who entered the HIV / AIDS program of the Edgardo Rebagliati Martins National Hospital between 2010 and 2014. Materials and methods: A secondary analysis of a database of PLWHA assisted the National Hospital Edgardo Rebagliati Martins; calculated considering that the base has 520 participants in TARGA, a frequency of intermittent viremia in patients on treatment with a protease inhibitor base of 48%. In this study it was not necessary to use an instrument, since it is based on a secondary basis. Results: When performing the statistical analysis of the variables, no association was found. The participants who had co-infection with tuberculosis were 46, representing 8.8%; and received prophylaxis with CMX 226 (43.5%) participants. The participants who presented an intermittent viremia were 37, representing an incidence of 7.12%. Conclusions: No factor associated with the variable intermittent viremia was found. The identification of associated factors would have been important to reduce the transmission of HIV and the development of resistance to TARGA.
