Abstract:

We present a complicated case of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)‐infected male patient with a complexity of confounding and overlapping symptoms that can masquerade as another diagnosis. This is the case of a patient with multiple secondary sexually transmitted infectious diseases, lymphadenopathy, B-cell lymphoma, a productive cough, a clinical picture suggestive of pulmonary tuberculosis, eosinophilia, and a new-onset acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Our presentation highlights those deteriorations seen in our patient as well as various underlying immunologic changes in the content of HIV infection. This case may not be unique, but less severe cases occur and can be underdiagnosed, indicating the need of timely screening, close evaluation, and monitoring of HIV-infected patients as well as those with high risk of acquiring HIV.
