Abstract A 56-year-old man was admitted with hemiparesis and shortness of breath. He was positive to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody and was diagnosed as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) with Kaposi's sarcoma and pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. He developed chronic photosensitivity and vitiligo preceding the onset of the AIDS-related complex (ARC). Association of the two skin lesions with HIV infection is very rare. Although the role of HIV infection in these skin lesions is not significant, the immunological responses in the early course of HIV infection may have contributed to the development of both of these skin lesions.
