  1. Prevalence of thrombocytopenia in HIV-infected and non-HIV infected drug users and homosexual men.

    Article - En anglais

    We studied the prevalence and risk factors for thrombocytopenia among 299 drug users and 461 homosexual men.

    The prevalence of thrombocytopenia was 3.3% in HIV-negative homosexual men, 8.7% in HIV-negative drug users, 16.4% in HIV-positive homosexual men, and 36.9% in HIV-positive drug users.

    With multivariate logistic regression HIV-seropositivity (odds ratio 3.3), a history of injecting drugs (OR 3.9), an increased number of lymphocytes (OR 0.44), an increased number ofneutrophils (OR 0.53) and a larger mean platelet volume (OR 2.8) were independently and significantly associated with thrombocytopenia.
