Abstract

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head has been described in the literature in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. It has been associated with either a hypertriglyceridemic state or the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies. We describe a case of AVN of the medial femoral condyle in an HIV-infected patient associated with a hypertriglyceridemic state.
