Mental Retardation, v27 n4 p241-43 Aug 1989
The article presents the case study of a 16-year-old boy with mental retardation and a positive blood test for HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infection. Fear of liability led to breach of consent, violation of confidentiality, and discrimination. Policy concerns about decision-making in the child welfare system regarding persons with HIV infection are discussed. (DB)
