Incidence of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) remains high in the context of HIV infection. High-grade NHL are the sub-types commonly seen. Indolent lymphomas have been rarely described although several cases of fol-licular or marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) have been published. Among MZL, MALT lymphomas are predominant. We describe 3 cases of MZL with leukemic… (More)
INTRODUCTION In non-HIV patients, Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MGUS) is associated with an increased risk of subsequent development of haematologic malignancies, especially multiple myeloma (MM) and it has been recently demonstrated that MM is always preceded by a MGUS phase. A higher prevalence of MGUS and MM has been observed in HIV… (More)
Aim of the study In the pre-cART era, anemia was a frequent complication observed in HIV patients. But, recent studies showed a persistent high prevalence of anemia, integrating anemia in the premature aging observed in HIV patients. The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of anemia in our patient's cohort.
We report a patient who developed during HIV primary infection a symptomatic mixed cryoglobulinemia. The patient suffered from arthralgias, vascular purpura of the legs, and proteinuria. Cryoglobulinemia progressively disappeared in several months after HAART.
