Peripheral nerve involvement is a frequent complication of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection1. Among cranial nerves, the seventh is the most commonly affected2. However, facial diplegia is a rare clinical entity in the HIV infected population.

We recently observed a case that is of particular interest, since the patient developed facial diplegia and unilateral vestibular neuritis revealing HIV infection.
