Between 1989 and 1992 there were 916 reported cases of ESRD due to HIVAN; in New York State alone 387 cases were reported, improbably accounting for 42% of the national cases. This analysis assumes HIVAN risk in proportion to the incidence of HIV-1 infection in blacks throughout the country, and predicts 1500-2000 unreported cases of ESRD from HIVAN during this time period. This abstract suggests that HIVAN may be the fourth leading cause of ESRD in African Americans. Four hundred and eighty - 750 new cases a year are predicted, accounting for 20% of ESRD in young blacks. An unrecognized "epidemic" of HIVAN ESRD is envisioned. (Pastan)
