We describe a clinical case of ARDS in an HIV infected patient. ARDS was associated to a respiratory syncytial virus infection that triggered a suspected Pneumocystis infection that despite missing etiologic proofs was treated with antimycotics. As rather limited information on RSV associated ARDS in HIV patients is available in the current literature, this case is of significant interest.
