Improved survival from diagnosis of AIDS in adult cases in the United Kingdom and bias due to reporting delays.
To measure developments in survival patterns among United Kingdom adult AIDS cases.
A follow-up survey of cases reported voluntarily to the national surveillance schemes was undertaken to obtain up-to-date information on vital status.
All reporting clinicians who had a current AIDS patient not known to have died whose AIDS-defining illness was diagnosed before the end of September 1990 were contacted.
A total of 3984 cases were included in the analysis.
An extra third of deaths other than those reported through routine channels were ascertained by follow-up.
