Tuberculosis in HIV-infected individuals

  • Douglas V. Sepkowitz

Abstract

When the AIDS epidemic began in the early 1980s, the incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in the USA had been falling for more than 30 years. From 1953 to 1984, the number of reported cases of TB decreased by 73.6% (from 84 304 to 22 255) [1]. In 1985, however, the decline in the number of cases stopped, and in 1986, the number of TB cases increased by 3%. There was a further increase of 5% in 1989 and 6% in 1990 [2].
