Abstract

Although highly active antiretroviral therapy has improved the clinical course of patients with HIV, this population remains at a significantly increased risk for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Spinal cord compression is a rare presentation of NHL, regardless of the patient population. We encountered a patient with HIV-related NHL who presented with a thoracic spinal cord compression and had a complicated clinical course as a result of the atypical presentation.
