Persistent hiccups in patients with human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) are most often associated with opportunistic infections or HIV-associated illnesses. There have been no described cases of hiccups due to highly active antiretroviral medications. We report a case of persistent hiccups likely due to fixed-dose tenofovir and emtricitabine and review etiologies of persistent and intractable hiccups in patients with HIV and common gastrointestinal disturbances linked to the fixed-dose formulation.
