Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases reported as the result of heterosexual contact have been increasing in the United States, with Florida reporting a disproportionate number.
We investigated 168 such AIDS cases from souther Florida.
After follow-up, 50 (30%) patients were reclassified into other transmission categories.
The data suggest that the increased rate of heterosexually acquired AIDS cases reported from southern Florida was partially related to misclassification of risk.
