Right hip and bilateral shoulder capsulitis in an HIV-infected individual treated with elvitegravir and cobicistat
Capsulitis is characterized by a painful and progressive limitation of the joint. Several causative factors have been implicated. Amongst possible iatrogenic causes, certain antiretroviral therapies (ARTs) and, in particular, the two protease inhibitors indinavir and nelfinavir have been proposed. No other class of ART has thus far been implicated. We report here the case of a patient who had recurring capsulitis of the right hip and a bilateral frozen shoulder taking tenofovir/emtricitabine, elvitegravir and cobicistat.
