250 patients with evidence of pulmonary tuberculosis and 50 nontubercular patients as a control group were subjected to Tuberculin test, Chest X-Ray, sputum microscopy, screening for HIV by ELISA and confirmation by Western blot if ELISA test was found positive. In the study group, 11 tested positive for HIV-1 and 239 tested seronegative, however, in the control group all patients were HIV seronegative. HIV infection was most prevalent in young males in the 21-40 year age group, with a history of tuberculosis, either residing, or working in an urban area away from their family. All our cases were of the HIV-1 serotype.
