Abstract

HIV is now a manageable chronic condition with a near-normal life expectancy if diagnosed early. Treatment can be a simple 'one tablet, once a day' regimen with minimal side effects or interactions with other medication. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals' perception of risk of HIV infection is often incorrect and patients remain undiagnosed because healthcare professionals assume that their patients are not at risk of HIV. This report demonstrates a case of missed HIV diagnosis in the military primary care setting and its consequences because of incorrect assumption rather than presenting clinical conditions.
