    Article - En anglais

    Background and Objectives 

    To determine the HIV and syphilis seroprevalence in patients with suspected sexually transmitted diseases at an urban walk-in clinic.


    Between January and November 1991,515 patients with suspected sexually transmitted diseases were simultaneously tested for syphilis and HIV antibodies.


    The cohort studied was young (85% were<40 years), 81% were black, 11% Hispanic, and 71% reported heterosexual contact as the primary HIV risk factor.

    HIV seroprevalence was 8% (41/515), (95% confidence interval [95% CI], 5.66%, 10.34%). Syphilis seroprevalence rate was 21.4% (110/515), (95% CI 17.86%, 24.94%).
