This paper describes a hypothetical case of a HIV positive pilot. It explores legal and ethical aspects of medical confidentiality and discusses who, inside and outside military and medical circles, can be told of his condition in the light of the particular circumstances. Disclosure without the patient’s consent is a serious step that should not be undertaken without advice from Service medico-legal departments and medical protection organisations.
