A longitudinal study of 282 community-based drug users was conducted from February 1999 through September 2000. Both the incidence (15.0 cases per 100 person-years at risk; 95% confidence interval, 10.2–20.7 cases per 100 person-years at risk) and persistence of Staphylococcus aureus carriage were increased among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–seropositive individuals.
