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.
