Abstract

We describe a man who presented with Reiter's syndrome and a new prominent malar rash. The malar rash was the clue for the early diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in this patient. A high index of suspicion for the diagnosis of HIV infection is required in patients with Reiter's syndrome presenting with unusual clinical manifestations.
