PMID:  2407219     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome epidemic has led to significant medicolegal concerns in the areas of informed consent and confidentiality. These legal concepts are directed at preserving respect for individual autonomy and privacy in the face of the epidemic. Emerging legal doctrines and issues related to consent and confidentiality are outlined, and areas where the laboratory may develop procedures and policies in light of the doctrines are suggested.
