J Clin Gastroenterol. 1984 Jun;6(3):281-4. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE
In this paper, I have focused on the issue of the clinical
gastroenterologist who refuses to evaluate and endoscope the patient
with AIDS. The discussion centers around the legal and ethical
properties of such a decision, and the legal doctrine of abandonment.
Finally, I have reviewed recent recommendations regarding infection
control practices regarding endoscopists and patients with AIDS.
