AIDS is a systematic infection of retrovirus causing immunodeficiency. Many varied manifestations of the dis­ease have been reported. Systemic vasculitis has been re­ported in as one of the manifestations of the syndrome. This has resulted in areas of skin necrosis in varied parts of «SQ»the body. We report a case of penile skin necrosis which occurred spontaneously in a 25-year-old male patient with no evidence of trauma or infection.
