• A 49-year-old bisexual man with generalized lymphadenopathy and antihuman T lymphocyte virus, type III, (HTLV-III) antibodies presented with recurrent, unilateral amaurosis fugax. A temporal artery biopsy specimen showed eosinophilic vasculitis. The patient then developed acquired immunodeficiency syndrome with Kaposi's sarcoma. We describe this patient because of the unusual association of large vessel vasculitis and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
