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.
