Cutaneous Acanthamoeba infection is a rare opportunistic infection in immunocompromised persons. We report a case of a patient with AIDS who developed disseminated Acanthamoeba secondary to chronic acanthamoebic sinusitis and review recent literature regarding new treatments for this relatively hard-to-treat disease.
