We report an 11-year-old girl with acanthosis nigricans that appeared after 4 years of treatment with didanosine, stavudine and amprenavir. Laboratory studies showed hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and hypertriglyceridemia. Withdrawal of amprenavir resulted in disappearance of acanthosis nigricans and improvement of metabolic abnormalities. © 2005 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
