The pathogenic association of reactive arthritis with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) needs more attention. In this case report we described a case of 22 year old male patient suffering from severe HIV infection. He presented with the complaints of left knee joint pain associated with swelling and tenderness. He also developed keratotic papules on palms and soles and polycyclic erosions on the glans penis. He was diagnosed as a case of reactive arthritis with HIV infection. The patient was treated with sulfasalazine and anti retroviral therapy. We, hereby discuss the underlying pathogenesis and treatment modalities in patients of reactive arthritis with underlying HIV infection. The treatment of reactive arthritis with HIV is a challenge due to limited options of immunosupressive agents.
