ABSTRACT: One hundred and forty serum specimens from patients seropositive for HIV were tested by reverse passive haemagglutination test for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). Among the 140 sera, 104 were from patients attending STD clinic, 24 were from blood donors, and 12 were from patients with AIDS related complex (ARC). HBsAg was detected in 20 sera. These 20 patients included 6 ARC patients, 4 blood donors and 10 patients attending STD clinic with history of promiscuity. The total percent positivity of HBsAg in HIV seropositives was 14.3 percent as against 1.43 percent in HIV seronegative controls.
