At the close of one year and the beginning of the next, a deep-seated human gene is expressed compelling us to list the top 10 of all things great and small during the past 12 months. The year-end top 10 phenomenon has also found its way into medical education, where experts report what they consider to be the most important developments in their fields. Such lists are, naturally, quite subjective, reflecting the interests of the list-maker, but to a great extent they can also be somewhat redundant as the big news-making studies deservedly find a place on every such list.

What follows is the view of one U.S.-based clinical researcher/clinician on what new information led to a change in the way we practice HIV care -- or, at the very least, made us stop and think long and hard about what we are doing. The accompanying table provides a quick overview of the take-home message from each item on the list, describes how the selected data influenced and advanced our understanding of HIV medicine and, finally, details what remains to be learned.
