Abstract

People with HIV infection who commence highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) occasionally develop reactivation of subclinical infection. This clinical entity is termed immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) and is defined as a paradoxical deterioration in clinical status as a result of recovery of the immune system during HAART. We present three cases of IRIS following a diagnosis of AIDS related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that resembled lymphoma relapse.
