Abstract

We describe a case of arthritis and subcutaneous nodules in a 34-year-old woman with anti-ribonucleoprotein presence and no response to glucocorticoid treatment. A human immunodeficiency virus infection was diagnosed, and the antiretroviral therapy completely controlled the rheumatic manifestations.
