Abstract

Elite controllers are human immunodeficiency virus-1-positive individuals capable of sustaining undetectable viral loads without treatment. We present the case of an elite controller diagnosed with extensive stage small cell lung cancer who maintained a viral load of <20 copies/mL despite the development of severe treatment-related lymphopenia.
