Abstract Autopsy findings have contributed greatly to our understanding of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. To our knowledge, documented autopsy-acquired infection with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 has not been reported, suggesting autopsy performance is of limited risk. We present a well-documented case of autopsy-acquired human immunodeficiency virus infection in a pathologist who sustained a scalpel wound to the hand.
