  • Descrição: Controversy surrounds the case of a sailor from Manchester who died of a wasting syndrome similar to AIDS in 1959. Such a diagnosis would predate the earliest known AIDS case. Posthumous tissue analysis and comparison with other samples may have caused contamination, which led to the false diagnosis. Laboratory procedures have been questioned and the family of the sailor may deserve an apology for this distressing allegation.
