Abstract

The prognosis of HIV-infected patients has dramatically improved since the advent of HAART. The immune recovery associated with HAART may result in immuno-pathological reactions and clinical deterioration when HAART is initiated in patients with tuberculosis (TB). This phenomenon is defined as immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). In this review, we summarise the epidemiology, clinical presentations and management of TB-associated IRIS.
