Recurrent bacterial pneumonia was recently added to the definition of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), based on the observtion that bacterial pneumonia rates have been increased in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons and are indicative of immunosuppression in this population.
Nonetheless, risk factors for bacterial pneumonia among HIV-infected persons remain largely uninvestigated.
Identification of risk factors that may be associated with bacterial pneumonia can guide development of future interventions and further clarify groups for such interventions.
