Abstract

The diagnosis of disseminated follicular hyperkeratotic spicules in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated follicular syndrome (HIV-FS) is challenging because of its similarity to trichodysplasia spinulosa (TS), which has been strongly linked to the TS-associated polyomavirus (TSPyV).Here, we present a case of disseminated follicular spicules in HIV-FS in which seven known human polyomaviruses, including TSPyV, were not detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), suggesting that HIV-FS is a distinct entity from TS.
