Abstract

There is a high incidence of antiphospholipid antibodies, detected by assays for anticardiolipin or lupus-like anticoagulant, in HIV disease. However, a link to the antiphospholipid syndrome, with clinical thrombosis, is tenuous. We report a case of a 25-year-old man with undetermined risk factors for HIV presenting with possible antiphospholipid syndrome manifesting as necrotic skin lesions as the initial clinical presentation for HIV. We also review the literature exploring the association between HIV and antiphospholipid syndrome.
