Acute appendicitis as a manifestation of the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome is repeatedly discussed in the literature, but only a few cases of acute appendicitis associated with the initiation of cART have been published as yet. We describe a case of a young HIV-infected man who suffered from acute appendicitis early after the successful switch of a failing cART regimen.
