110 The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies HL into two distinct entities: the more commonly diagnosed classical HL and the rare nodular lymphocyte-predominant HL. 115 reported in a decade in the Greater San Francisco Bay area that incidence rates by race of HIV-associated HL were overall higher for whites (11%), blacks (22%) and Hispanics (14%) compared to those with non-HIV-associated HL. 116–118 CLINICAL PRESENTATION OF HL HL occurring in the HIV population exhibits clinical features that are distinct from HL in the general population.

In groups with low-, low-intermediate-, and high-intermediate-risk IPI disease, 3-year overall survival rates were 20%, 22%, and 5% in the pre-HAART era and 64%, 64%, and 50% in the HAART era, respectively. TREATMENT OF AIDS-RELATED NHL The treatment for ARLs is similar to that of non-HIV-infected individuals, with some exceptions. 89 The use of hematopoetic stimulants such as granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) may aid in reducing chemotherapy-induced cytopenic complications. 90 The AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC) reported using, in 65 patients, reduced doses of cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin, combined with vincristine and prednisone (modified CHOP, mCHOP) and full doses of CHOP combined with G-CSF with concomitant HAART.

Adverse risk factors for age-adjusted IPI are: stage III or IV disease, elevated LDH, performance status ≥2. 30 AIDS-Associated Viral Oncogenesis intensive therapy (age and performance status). The simplified model for younger patients (the age-adjusted IPI) uses a subgroup of these clinical features (tumor stage, LDH level, and performance status). 88 compared the prognostic factors for survival and the use of the IPI in pre- and post-HAART HIV-infected individuals with diffuse-large cell lymphoma.
