Population-based disease registries for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and cancer were linked for San Francisco residents to study the pattern of AIDS-associated malignancies diagnosed during the time period 1980-1987.
A total of 1,756 newly diagnosed malignancies were identified during these years among members of the AIDS cohort.
Of these, 1,752 (99.7%) occurred in males, 1,454 (83%) were Kaposi's sarcoma, 235 (13%) were non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and 16 (1%) were Hodgkin's disease.
The distributions of AIDS patients with cancer differed significantly from those without cancer by race and by risk group.
