The case is presented of a 35 year-old woman with an HIV infection for 6 years and on antiretroviral treatment, She had no previous history of rheumatic disease. She presented with polyarthralgias, predominantly in hands associated with synovitis, elevated acute phase reactants, with both rheumatoid factor and anti-CCP positive. Thus she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This disease has a low incidence in the context of retrovirus infection and is considered secondary to Immune Reconstitution Syndrome after antiretroviral therapy. Management starts with modifying drugs, thereby gaining control of the autoimmune disease.
