Immunocompromised patients, including those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), are susceptible to a variety of opportunistic infections, cutaneous malignancies, and other skin lesions, which can present with nonspecific cutaneous findings. Herein, we present the case of a 28-year-old male with AIDS who presented with fatigue, left axillary lymphadenopathy, and a necrotic, red papule on the left upper arm. This case reviews the differential diagnosis of this presentation in an immunosuppressed patient including the key pathological findings.
