Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in tuberculosis (TB) patients in the Netherlands during the period 1993–2001 was associated with an increased risk of death (adjusted odds ratio 4.71, P < 0.002). Age and sex-standardised mortality rates among HIV-infected TB patients decreased significantly over time, from 22.9% in 1993–1995 to 11.8% in 1999–2001 (P < 0.001). No such change was observed for HIV-negative patients. The decrease in mortality is likely due to the more widespread use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
