Here we report a case of HIV infection in a lesbian lacking other risk factors. She had sought advice for asthenia and unexplained weight loss. The physical examination disclosed oropharyngeal candidiasis and generalized lymphoadenopathies. The patient defined herself as an active sexual partner and denied having any heterosexual intercourse whatsoever. Particle agglutination test proved positive for anti-HIV, as well as two consecutive ELISA assays, confirmed by Western blot. Since there was no history of blood transfusions or intravenous drug addiction, it may be concluded that HIV transmission was most likely due to female homosexual practices.(AU)
