An unusual vulval lesion in an HIV-infected woman
ABSTRACT This is the case of a black African woman who presented with three distinct episodes of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection unresponsive to first-line therapy. Clinical and virological resistance to aciclovir therapy was demonstrated, and although the first two episodes manifested as the deep ulceration often associated with HIV/HSV coinfection, the third was an atypical hypertrophic lesion. This is despite her CD4 count being persistently above 300 and there being no previous diagnosis of AIDS.

Nodules are rare in immunocompromised patients and there have been few reports in either sex   . A 41-year-old woman presented with a painless hypertrophic vulvar lesion that had been infected for over 6 months. "
