Drug resistance may be the main cause of antiretroviral treatment failure in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Drug-resistant mutations have been described for all 3 classes of antiretroviral drugs. The first case of sexual transmission of a multidrug-resistant variant (MDR) was published in 1998.1 We report a new case.
