To our knowledge, we report the first case of a homosexually active man with severe hemophilia A in whom acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) developed. Alterations in cell-mediated immunoregulation and development of AIDS have been described in both healthy homosexually active men and heterosexual men with hemophilia A. Patients with multiple risks may be more likely to have AIDS develop. Physicians should be aware of the risk factors associated with AIDS; persons with multiple predisposing factors require intensive examination and close follow-up.
