We examined the trends of HIV testing among patients notified with TB in Denmark during a 3-year period from 2007 to 2009. We were able to obtain HIV testing status for 96%. There was a significant increase of patients examined for HIV infection during the 3-year period. HIV prevalence among HIV-tested TB patients in Denmark is much higher than in the average population. It seems there is an increasing awareness in Denmark towards testing TB cases for HIV co-infection.
