S treptococcus pneumoniae is the leading cause of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia and bacteremia in HIV-infected persons (1-3). Persons infected with HIV currently account for at least 40% of all adult cases of invasive pneumococcal disease in many U.S. medical centers (4, 5). Pneumococcal disease can occur early in the course of HIV infection, before onset of other opportunistic infections specifically associated with AIDS (6-8), and recurrent infection is common (2, 8). Extremely high overall rates of invasive disease have been documented in persons with AIDS (6, 8, 9), but no detailed data are available on disease rates in different demographic groups.
