The article reports a case of an 18 month old female with red fingers syndrome and HIV infection. Red finger syndrome consists of well-delineated erythema of the periungual and pulp areas, with occasional telangiectasia, on the fingers and/or toes. The cause of this syndrome is unknown. But viral liver diseases and the high viral load of HIV may play a role.
