We describe a 39-year-old bisexual man with clinical category B2 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection who subsequently developed systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). SLE was diagnosed on the basis of a clinical presentation of malar rash, polyarthritis, membranous glomerulonephritis, and characteristic serology. To our knowledge, this is the fourth reported case of a patient with HIV infection to develop SLE and the second adult patient with HIV and coexistent SLE nephropathy.
