ABSTRACT
Abstract: A cost-of-illness study July 1, 1984-June 30, 1985 evaluating 28 patients with AIDS-Related Complex (ARC) and/or Generalized Lymphadenopathy Syndrome (GLS) found the average cost to be $489 per patient per year. None of the ARC or GLS patients in our study was hospitalized during the one year period, and none progressed to AIDS. No AIDS-specific treatment such as AZT was available at the time this study was completed. (Am J Public Health 1988; 78:969-970.)
