Abstract: A 56-year-old married woman from Nigeria presented with severe right-sided orofacial pain for 2 weeks. The intense, dull, constant pain in the right maxilla preceded by 3 days the onset of oral soreness. The patient also complained of fatigue, episodes of fever ( 38 °C) and cervical lymphadenopathy. She had not taken any medicines, apart from analgesics. She had been recently diagnosed as HIV+ve. None of her relatives, to her knowledge, had similar lesions.
