The classical presentation of CNS in the setting of HIV-1 infection with a biopsy finding consistent with HIV immune complex disorder will strongly support HIV-1 as a secondary cause of CNS in this case, although tissue for immunofluorescence was suboptimal and lights microscopy did not show microcytic tubular dilatation (a typical finding of nephropathy in the setting of HIV).
In the case of immune mediated hemorrhage in the lung, the hypotheses for vessel leak are (1) vessel injury from neutrophil activation (e.g., through antineutrophil antibodies (ANCA associated vasculitis, AAV)), (2) immune complex deposition with activation of complement, anaphylatoxin, and mast cells, or (3) abnormal lymphocyte inflammation and injury [14-16].
