The appearance of primary HIV infection ranges from an asymptomatic presentation to a symptomatic illness resembling infectious mononucleosis. Severe unusual presentations include acute myopericarditis, renal failure, and opportunistic infections such as esophageal candidiasis, cytomegalovirus infection, and Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia. We report a case of multiple organ failure during primary HIV infection.
