Table 1. Published Cases of Gonococcal Arthritis in Patients With Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
Abstract

We report a case of gonococcal arthritis in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and review 17 previously published cases; only one patient presented urethritis, and blood cultures were positive in one case. Gonococcal arthritis is rare in HIV-infected patients and is not usually associated with other symptoms. It should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute arthritis in patients with HIV infection.

Keywords:
Human immunodeficiency virus
Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Arthritis
Homosexuals
Resumen

Presentamos un caso de artritis gonocócica en un paciente con infección por el virus de inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH) y revisamos los 17 casos previamente publicados en sujetos con infección por este virus; solo un paciente presentó uretritis y los hemocultivos fueron positivos en un caso. La artritis gonocócica es infrecuente en pacientes con infección por el VIH y suele presentarse de forma aislada. Debe incluirse en el diagnóstico diferencial de las artritis agudas en pacientes con infección por el VIH.
