A 66]year]old woman from rural Guinea Bissau who had no obvious antiretroviral exposure was found to harbor a variant with the multidrug]resistance mutation Q151M. Finding this mutation among a drug]naive population presents an important public health issue that needs to be addressed for treatment to be effective.
