To detect changes in the evolution of the AIDS epidemic in Spain.
Analysis of time-trends in AIDS incidence.
AIDS cases reported in Spain up to December 1993 were adjusted for reporting delays.
Quarterly time-trends in incidence were analysed for groups divided according to sex, age and transmission category.
The adjusted number of cases diagnosed by September 1993 totalled 24519.
Of these, 15652 were injecting drug users (IDU), 3679 were homosexual/bisexual men and 1753 were cases of heterosexually transmitted infection since 1989.
AIDS incidence has exhibited a linear rate of growth.
While all groups studied showed an upward trend, variations were found between the different groups.
