Charcot's arthropathy is a destructive arthritis that can occur in patients with peripheral neuropathies of various etiologies. This report describes a rare case of Charcot's arthropathy attributable to the distal sensory polyneuropathy associated with HIV infection. As treatments for HIV/AIDS advance and life expectancy increases, cases of endorgan sequelae, such as Charcot foot, may become more common.
