Depression Underdiagnosed in HIV Patients


Danish research indicates that symptoms of depression and comorbid mental illness appear to be underdiagnosed and undertreated in patients with HIV. Symptoms of depression were observed in 35% of HIV patients. Symptoms of moderate or major depression were seen in 26% of the study group. The prevalence of comorbid mental illness was also high.
