HIV testing in patients with tuberculosis : physician response to national recommendations.
The epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease has contributed to the resurgence of tuberculosis in the United States.
For clinical and public health reasons, the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis has recommended that all patients with tuberculosis be tested for HIV antibodies.
We reviewed the medical records of all patients with tuberculosis in whom a diagnosis was made at a Detroit medical center from July 1, 1986 to June 30, 1990, before and after recommendations were issued.
