METHODS: The national inpatient sample (NIS) data were analyzed from 2002-2014. The discharge coding identified hospitalized patients with HIV or AIDS and with or without PCP.
RESULTS: We identified 3,011,725 hospitalizations with HIV/AIDS during the study period; PCP was present in 5% of the patients with a diagnosis of HIV. The rates of PCP progressively declined from 6.7% in 2002 to 3.5 % in 2014 (
CONCLUSION: From 2002 to 2014, the rate of PCP in HIV patients has decreased significantly in the United States but is associated with substantially higher mortality.
