ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a Belgian woman who was diagnosed as having AIDS-related complex. The woman identified an African civil engineer as the only possible source of infection. When the civil engineer was diagnosed with HIV, he gave the names of 19 women with whom he had intercourse over the preceding five years. The women had no high-risk characteristics and two of them became infected after only one act of intercourse with the man. It was concluded that emphasizing only sexual relations with multiple partners as a risk factor for women may be irrelevant and even counterproductive, since it implies that the absence of multiple partners makes women safe.
