Abstract

Non-Hodgkins lymphoma of the ovary is a rare disease and there is only one previously documented case arising in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In this report, the authors discuss the management of a case of non-Hodgkins Lymphoma of the ovary occurring in a patient with HIV and demonstrate that treatment regimens may be successfully implemented in this immunocompromised population without an increase in adverse effects.
