ABSTRACT: One hundred and eleven paediatric patients with haematological disorders, who had received multiple transfusions were screened for the presence of anti HIV-1 & HIV-2 antibodies, by ELISA and Serodia techniques and confirmed subsequently by Western Blot test. Of these patients, nine tested positive for anti HIV antibodies. None were positive for anti HIV-2 antibodies. Of the 111 patients, 89 were thalassemics, 20 were leukemics and two were haemophiliacs. The breakup of HIV seropositivity in these groups was 8.9 percent (8/89), 0 percent (0/20), and 50 percent (1/2) respectively.
