In sub-Saharan African countries with high endemicity of HIV infection, nodular prurigo is a sensitive and specific sign of HIV infection. Moreover, it is an accurate predictor of a low CD4 count [92]. Similar observations have been documented in other parts of the world and in other ethnicities. 8% of 796 HIV-positive patients; 88 out of the 90 patients with prurigo had CD4 counts less than 200 mm3 [93]. However, since there are no precise and reliable clinical diagnostic criteria for prurigo nodularis (nor a precise definition of the word “prurigo,” which historically corresponds to various skin diseases, including AD), it is possible that some of the rashes diagnosed as prurigo nodularis comprise various skin lesions that would have been recognized by others as related to “pruritic papular eruption of HIV,” an entity that some authors have proposed to rename “arthropod-induced prurigo of HIV” [94].
