In the present work, we report a case of Taiwanese male who developed flu-like seroconversion illness initially. Then early-onset human immunodeficiency virus-related mania was found 4 weeks later. In the case, sepsis-induced delirium complicated the treatment course. Quetiapine and topiramate were used for short-term stabilization and long-term treatment. Mild neurocognitive disorder, the hint of worse prognosis, was proved by intact psycho-cognitive evaluation.
