Abstract This paper examines patterns of psychological adjustment in a small sample of asymptomatic HIV antibody positive men. Comparison is made with data available on male cancer patients. HIV positive men reported greater degrees of anxious preoccupation and hopelessness, and lower levels of the more adaptive ‘fighting spirit’ response. In HIV‐infected men, depression correlated positively with frequency of high risk sexual practices. 1991 The British Psychological Society
