Excerpt
All 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. dependencies and possessions, and independent nations in free association with the U.S.' report AlDS cases to CDC using a uniform case definition and case report form. The original definition was modified in 1985 (MMWR 1985;34: 373-5) and again in 1987 (MMWR 1987;36 [suppl. no. 1 S]: l S-15s). The revisions incorporated a broader range of AIDSindicator diseases and conditions and used human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnostic tests to improve the sensitivity and specificity of the definition. For persons with laboratory-confirmed HIV infection, the 1987 revision incorporated HIV encephalopathy, wasting syndrome, and other indicator diseases that are diagnosed presumptively (i.e., without confirmatory laboratory evidence of the opportunistic disease). AlDS cases that meet the criteria of both the pre-1987 and 1987 definitions are classified in the pre-1987 definition category. Compared with patients who meet the pre-1987 case definition, a higher proportion of patients who meet nltyh e 1987 case definition were female, black, or Hispanic, or were intravenous drug users (MMWR 1989;38: 229-36).
