AIDS continually presents new questions for the obstetrician and gynecologist. The effect on pregnancy, the possibility of perinatal transmission, HIV positive tests, and risk to staff are just a few of the issues confronting clinicians and practitioners today. These and other questions were addressed by the 19th Study Group of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, whose findings are reported here.
