First some social conditions of psychic illness on the background of "AIDS" as an up-to-date problem were demonstrated. Then important psychopathological states of patient with a positive or negative AIDS-test were explained. Furthermore follows a case study with a so-called "AIDS-phobia". In the discussion the "AIDS-phobia" become apparent not as a special phobic behaviour but as a extensive hypochondriacal syndrome, sometimes near by a hypochondriacal delusion.
