Pathological examination of rectal biopsies showed granulation tissue, increase in polymorphonuclear leucocytes, fibrin exudate associated with fibrosis and stromal limfogranuloma. Furthermore, it is not considered an opportunistic infection as most of the cases described were under antiretroviral treatment and with normal CD4 lymphocyte count.

The cause of the hepatosplenomegaly, discovered by ultrasonography, remained unclear; the patient’s hepatic parameters were normal, arguing against the possibility of an infectious etiology.
