  • Differential Diagnoses:
    1. ICD-10 Code: №B20 – Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    2. ICD-10 Code: №A64 – Unspecified sexually transmitted disease
    3. ICD-10 Code: №F41.9 – Anxiety disorder, unspecified
The patient is afraid of having HIV or another sexually transmitted disease because of the unprotected sexual intercourse with two partners during the party. The main symptoms are anxiety, sleeping disorder, fear. There are no other complaints or symptoms. For this reason, the three diagnoses could be applied to the case.

These are HIV, STDs, or anxiety disorder preconditioned by the fear of contagion. Considering the fact that the patient denies having other health problems, it is crucial to use specific tests either to prove or to refute the outlined diagnoses. The patient usually uses condoms; she had only 3 sexual partners. She studies at college and is socially active. The patient has good relations with relatives and friends. Denies vaginal or urinal infections. In the course of the examination, no signs of HIV or STDs were discovered. That is why anxiety disorder remains the main presumptive diagnosis.

To prove the final diagnosis, it is crucial to exclude HIV and STDs from the list. For this reason, HIV screening tests like antigen/antibody and urine ones should be prescribed. They will indicate the presence or absence of the disease. Moreover, the blood test to discover STDs is needed. To consider all risk factors, vaginal, cervical, and urethral swabs investigation should be prescribed. In case all tests are negative for HIV and STDs, the unspecified anxiety could be diagnosed.

Presumptive Diagnosis: Anxiety Disorder


  • Treatment
    • Exclude HIV and STDs from the list.
    • Demonstrate the absence of threat to the patients health.
    • Consultation with a psychologist to treat anxiety. Yoga, physical exercises.
    • Sedative (Xanax) to treat the sleeping disorder (Bystrinsky, Khalsa, Cameron, & Schiffman, 2013).


The patient should be explained that her behavior is extremely dangerous for her health. HIV and other STDs could have a devastating impact on the quality of peoples lives. Unprotected sexual intercourse with an unknown partner is strongly prohibited because of the high risk of contagion (“Unprotected sex and HIV,” 2017). The patient should be educated to use condoms every time she plans sexual intercourse. Additionally, drug use is prohibited (Remy et al., 2013). Finally, casual sex increases chances for HIV or STDs contagion (Ford, Barnes, Rompalo, & Hook, 2013). For this reason, long-term relations could minimize risks. The nature of HIV should be explained to the patient to demonstrate its dangerous character and the outstanding impact on the quality of peoples lives.


  • The patient should visit a psychologist to treat anxiety disorder
  • The state of the patient should be examined in a month. Additional HIV screening tests should be prescribed to guarantee the absence of the disease.
  • The psychological state of the patient should be monitored.


The given case demonstrates a great danger that comes from unprotected sexual intercourses. HIV and STDs become a topical problem of the modern society. For this reason, it is crucial to educate young people who comprise the main risk group about the necessity of using condoms. Moreover, promiscuous sexual activity increases the risk of contagion significantly. The case provides the opportunity to acquire the information about the main tests that are used to determine HIV or STD. Moreover, it demonstrates the importance of educating patients about the nature of these diseases and their impact on the health of a person.
