Epidemiology

The first comprehensive report of SUDS in the United States was published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on December 4, 1981; it described 38 victims, all Southeast Asian refugees. All but one of the cases were males: 25 Hmong, 8 Laotian, 4 Vietnamese, and 1 Kampuchean. Median period of time in the United States was 5 months (range, 5 days to 52 months) before death. Geographic distribution of the deaths reflected the distribution of the Southeast Asian refugees in the United States. The deaths occurred between 9:30 P.M. and 7:00 A.M.
