Resumen

CORTI, Marcelo et al. Oral cavity lymphoma as secondary AIDS-defining neoplasm in a patient on HAART with immune reconstitution. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.5, pp. 582-584. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822007000500017.

Lymphomas of the oral cavity are a rare complication of advanced HIV/AIDS disease. The clinical appearance of these neoplasms includes masses or ulcerative lesions that involve the oral soft tissue and the jaw as the predominant manifestation. We report the case of a patient with AIDS who developed diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the oral cavity during highly active antiretroviral therapy, with undetectable plasma viral load and immune reconstitution.

Palabras llave : Oral cavity lymphoma; AIDS. HIV; Immune reconstitution.
