Abstract

While adherence to antiretroviral therapy is of paramount importance in the treatment of HIV-infected patients, optimal adherence can be challenging to achieve. Furthermore, the presence of comorbid psychiatric illness can potentially compromise treatment adherence. This Case Report highlights the difficulties encountered in the care and treatment adherence of an HIV-seropositive patient who presented with psychotic symptoms. Treatment, ethical, and legal issues are discussed.
