Objective: To define time and age-related trends in OIs in children. Methods: Analysis of pediatric AIDS cases reported to the NYC Office of AIDS Surveillance. Results: 2205 OIs have been reported in 1542 children. Age distribution for frequent OIs [P. carinii pneumonia (PCP); Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis (LIP); recurrent bacterial infections (RBI); HIV encephalopathy (Enceph); M. avium intracellulare (MAI)] is: (Tabular Data: See Abstract Volume). Conclusions: PCP, occurring predominantly at age O-6 months, remains the most frequent OI among children with AIDS in NYC. Encephalopathy and MAI are increasing, with MAI more common past age 5, suggesting lengthening survival of HIV-infected children.
