Various cutaneous disorders accompany HIV-infection, more frequently in patients with later stages of disease. The case of a male patient, aged 39, with a negative history, who presented disseminated molluscum contagiosum, Kaposi’s sarcoma and oral hairy leukoplakia is described. HIV-antibody serological assays, performed on the basis of clinical examination, were positive. The interest of this case lies in the unusual finding of Kaposi’s sarcoma, molluscum contagiosum disseminatum and oral hairy leucoplakia as first manifestations of HIV infection. Moreover, it is pointed out the dermatologists’ importance in AIDS diagnosis and prognosis.
