Abstract

A total of 1027 male patients suffering from sexually transmitted diseases (STD) during 1990 to 1996 were screened for HIV infection. All cases were in the age group 17years to 48 years. One hundred and sixty-seven STD cases (16.3%) were found to have HIV infection. A rising trend in incidence of HIV infection in STD patients from 1990 (2.8%) to 1996 (27.8%) was noticed contrary to declining trend of STDs from 213 cases in 1990 to 79 cases in 1996. The incidence of HIV infection was 30.3% in lymphogranuloma venereum, 19.5% in chancroid, 13.5% in syphilis, 17.6% in herpes genitalis, 6.7% in gonorrhoea and 11.2% in other STD cases.
