Establishing a diagnosis of primary HIV infection (PHI) is important for both the affected individual and public health, because the newly infected individual might readily transmit HIV to others. Unfortunately, diagnosing PHI is hindered by its non-specific presentation, among other factors. We report the case of a patient with extensive multiple organ involvement (fever, rhabdomyolysis, myocarditis, pancreatitis, bilateral renal infarcts, acute renal failure and anemia) in the setting of documented HIV seroconversion as an unusual form of PHI.
