The incidence of HIV reported as the cause of ESRD on Medicare 2278 forms was reviewed for 1993. HIV was reported to cause 435 new cases of ESRD, 0.8% overall, representing a 21.5% increase over 1992. HIV was reported to cause 11.8% of the ESRD in young black males (ages 25 - 44). Cases were clustered on the East coast. Because of restrictions in HIV testing and under reporting, these figures likely underestimate the rate of HIV induced ESRD. (Pastan)
