The objective of this study was to determine using in silico methods, HIV-1 tropism among(More)
HIV-related immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) is increasingly being recognized in regions with a high burden of opportunistic infections. We describe an unusual manifestation of IRIS- 'unmasking' cryptococcal lymphadenitis in a patient shortly after initiation of antiretroviral therapy.
