Complicated lymphogranuloma venereum infection mimicking deep vein thrombosis in an HIV-positive man
International Journal of STD & AIDS, 05/30/2012
Kennedy JE et al. – This complication followed an earlier attendance at the emergency department, where proctitis due to lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) infection went unrecognized. This is the first reported case of LGV infection mimicking a DVT. Prompt recognition and treatment of the initial proctitis may have prevented the development of SARA.
