Abstract

We present a case of a 50-year-old man who presented with newly diagnosed HIV infection and a progressive jejunal/omental infiltration causing subacute ileus. He had been diagnosed with celiac disease one year previously. He had a prominent CD8 T cell lymphocytosis demonstrated in peripheral blood, omentum, bone marrow and lymph node biopsies demonstrated two clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements on capillary electrophoresis. Extensive investigations for HIV associated infections were negative.
