Response from Dr. Henry
Lupus can be seen in HIV+ patients. There are a number of blood tests and examination findings that can lead to a diagnosis of lupus. Your HIV specialist and/or an immunologist/rheumatologist can often make the diagnosis after a full evaluation. Diagnosis can be trickier in the setting of HIV infection as can treatment. KH
