Abstract

Plasma cell dyscrasias appear to have a modestly increased incidence in patients with HIV and AIDS as determined by registry linkage studies. As with Hodgkin lymphoma in HIV patients, the presentation is often unusual and aggressive, and these tumors are commonly associated with Epstein-Barr virus. Little evidence suggests a link with Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus
