    3. Hodgkin's Lymphoma
  2. Types: Hodgkin's Lymphoma
    1. Incidence mildly increased in HIV
    2. Course may be more aggressive in HIV
    3. May have less complete response to Chemotherapy
  3. Types: Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
    1. Occurs when median CD4=200 cells
    2. Rapid tumor growth with extranodal disease
    3. Non-lymphatic sites: Lung, GI, Bone Marrow, Meninges
    4. Usually widespread (stage 4) at time of diagnosis
    5. Poor prognosis in patients with advanced HIV
    6. Median duration of survival is 3-6 months
    7. Associated with EBV viral gene sequence (40%)
  4. Types: Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma - Primary CNS
    1. Occurs in advanced AIDS (CD4 Count<50 cells)
    2. Highly Associated with EBV viral gene sequence
    3. Space occupying unifocal intracranial lesion
      1. May be confused with CNS Toxoplasmosis
    4. Survival without treatment is 3 months
    5. Response to treatment in 50% of cases

Lymphoma, AIDS-Related (C0085090)

Definition (MSH) B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Definition (NCI) An aggressive lymphoma that develops in HIV-positive patients. There is a significant increase in the incidence of lymphomas associated with the AIDS epidemic in the last two decades. These lymphomas are usually extranodal, most often express a B-cell phenotype and morphologically are classified as Burkitt, diffuse large B-cell, and Hodgkin lymphomas. The prognosis is closely related to the severity of immunodeficiency.
