Five hundred and twenty tuberculosis patients admitted to hospital and having a high risk factor for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection were evaluated for HIV seropositivity. Fourty patients (7.7%) were found to be seropositive. The clinical picture of these patients was compared with the seronegative tuberculosis patients. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis was more common in HIV seropositive patients. Weight loss and diarrhoea were more common in these patients but cough and haemoptysis were less frequent. Oral thrush and herpes zoster were seen only in HIV seropositive patients. The findings of this study show that HIV seropositive tuberculosis patients present with an atypical picture in this part of the country.
