Abstract Based on the difference in severity of the disease and complications, 80 cases of acquired immune-deficiency syndrome (AIDS) accompanied with cough were divided into 2 groups: One treated by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM group), including 58 cases and the other treated by Integrated Chinese and Western medicine (integrated group), 22 cases. The therapeutic results show that in the TCM group there were 18 cases (31.03\%) with clinical cure of the respiratory tract infection, 7 cases with therapeutic effect (12.07\%) and 33 cases without any effect (56.90\%), for a total rate of 43.10\% therapeutic effectiveness; while in the integrated group there were 6 cases with clinical cure (27.27\%), 2 cases with therapeutic effect (9.09\%) and 14 cases without any effect (63.64\%), the total rate of therapeutic effectiveness being 36.36\%, slightly lower than in the TCM group and possibly related to greater severity of the disease or complications.
