Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) is a recently described syndrome among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients attributable to the recovery of the immune system during antiretroviral therapy. A growing number of researches on this syndrome have been conducted in recent years, but IRIS in children has not been widely studied. We report the case of a 4.5 month-old, tuberculosis (TB)-HIV co-infected girl who developed IRIS two months after beginning antiretroviral and anti-TB medications. We moreover review the immunopathogenesis of TB-HIV coinfection and IRIS, with particular regard to TB-related IRIS.

Abstract

Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) is a recently described syndrome among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients attributable to the recovery of the immune system during antiretroviral therapy. A growing number of researches on this syndrome have been conducted in recent years, but IRIS in children has not been widely studied. We report the case of a 4.5 month-old, tuberculosis (TB)-HIV co-infected girl who developed IRIS two months after beginning antiretroviral and anti-TB medications. We moreover review the immunopathogenesis of TB-HIV coinfection and IRIS, with particular regard to TB-related IRIS.
