Abstract

BACKGROUND: Incidence of tuberculosis in persons coinfected with HIV is very high. The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors for tuberculosis in AIDS patients in Spain. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A study was carried into AIDS cases (1993 European AIDS case definition) over 12 years old, diagnosed in Spain in 1994. A comparison was run between cases with tuberculosis and the remaining reported AIDS cases on the register, by sex, age, transmission category and prison record. Multiple logistic regression was used to assess the independent effect of each variable, with the adjusted odds ratio (ORa) and their 95% confidence intervals. RESULTS: Annual incidence of AIDS and tuberculosis comorbidity was 8.9 per 100,000 inhabitants. Multivariate analysis revealed that tuberculosis in AIDS patients appeared with higher frequencyin: males (ORa = 1.4; CI 95%, 1.3-1.6); the 13-29 age group (ORa = 1.3; CI 95%, 1.1-1.5) and the 30-39 year old group (ORa = 1.1; CI 95%, 1.0-1.3), injecting drug users (IDU) (ORa = 1.4; CI 95%, 1.2-1.6), and those patients with a prison record (ORa = 2.1; CI 95%, 1.9-2.4). CONCLUSIONS: In Spain, male AIDS patients, under age 40 years with a prison record and IDU have a higher risk of tuberculosis. Control measures for tuberculosis should therefore be intensified among these patients.
