Lung cancer (LC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death among people living with HIV (PLWH) [1]. In the general population, adenocarcinoma is more common in women with LC, while squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) is more common in men. Survival after lung cancer is worse among PLWHA. We explore potential gender-related difference in lung cancer in HIV+(More)
