  1. Fulltext. Increasing frequency of heterosexually transmitted AIDS in Southern Florida : artifact or reality ?

    Article - En anglais


    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.
