Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The incidence of suicide in patients with the diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the state of Texas during the period between January 1986 and August 1987 was determined. AIDS patients were found to have a rate of suicide higher than expected when compared to the general population. The results of this study document this trend which has important implications in the care of the growing number of patients with AIDS.
