Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated lymphomas continue to be a challenge in the management of HIV seropositive patients. The advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy for the treatment of patients infected with HIV has decreased the incidence of opportunistic infections dramatically, however, lymphoma rates have shown variable results in epidemiologic studies. Burkitt lymphoma is an uncommon and aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma commonly identified in children. We report the case of an HIV seropositive adult male with the diagnosis of Burkitt lymphoma and review its relationship with HIV along with possible treatment options.
