We present a V light curve of the eclipsing binary system HV 2543 (Sk-67o117) in the Large Magellanic Cloud based on CCD images acquired between the years 1995 and 1998. We have analysed this light curve and published radial velocity data, finding that this system is semidetached, with the secondary (less massive and less luminous component) filling its Roche lobe. From our analysis with the Wilson-Devinney code, we estimated the following masses and radii for the components of HV 2543: , , and . On the basis of B and V photometry of the field stars, we found that HV 2543 is member of an OB association, perhaps related to which the massive binary system Sk-67o105 belongs.
