Article Title: Human immunodeficiency virus-associated lymphomas
Abstract: Lymphomas associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) will probably become an increasing problem with improved survivals of infected individuals in an immunosuppressed state because of the advances in antiretroviral treatment and the therapy of opportunistic infections. In an attempt to aid the understanding of the many aspects of the this growing problem, the current thinking about the epidemiology, pathology, biological and clinical features, and treatment of the systemic HIV-associated non- Hodgkin lymphomas is reviewed. The important features of the HIV-associated central nervous system lymphomas are also described. Finally, there is a discussion of Hodgkin's disease in HIV-infected individuals.
