  1. Lymphoma & other HIV-related malignancies AM report 9/30/2009 Darrell Laudate

  2. Non-AIDS defining malignancies & HIV • As patients have survived longer with AIDS, the frequency of non-AIDS-defining malignancies has increased compared to the non-HIV-infected population, and cancer deaths have accounted for an increasing fraction of the deaths in HIV-infected individuals. • probably reflects a true increased prevalence, combined with greater screening, more frequent detection of incidental lesions, better reporting, and longer survival in the HIV-infected population 1 • The usual suspects: Lung, Breast, , Prostate, Testicular, Bladder, Renal, Colorectal • Also , HCC, Skin (BCC, SCC, Melanomas), Head & Neck SCC, Conjunctival Ca, Hematologic Malignancies (Hodgkins, Plasma Cell disorder, AML)

  3. AIDS defining Malignancies • Kaposi's Sarcoma • Invasive Cervical Cancer (as well as malignancies of the anogenital tract, including the anus, vulva, penis, and perianal skin) • NHL  • Primary CNS Lymphoma

  4. Role of HIV in Malignancy • not generally considered oncogenic, a direct pathogenic role for HIV infection has been suggested by the following observations: • Components of the HIV viral genome have been incorporated into the fur gene complex on chromosome 15 in some cases of HIV-associated non-B cell malignant lymphomas.2 • The HIV tat gene protein product appears to be a growth factor for KS.  • Other viruses including EBV, HPV, HHV-8, HBV, & HCV

  5. Role of HAART • HAART causes both an immunologic response (manifested by a sustained elevations in CD4 lymphocyte counts) and a virologic response (nearly complete suppression of HIV viral replication).   • Both of these responses are important in achieving at least partial immune restoration, and thus decreasing the incidence of opportunistic infections, reducing the risk of developing NHL or KS, and prolonging survival.  • Since the widespread introduction of HAART, the incidence of KS and NHL has declined in HIV-infected patients, and is inversely proportional to the CD4 lymphocyte count.3

  8. When to suspect Lymphoma • Suspicious PMH • Positive family history • Radiation, chemotherapy, immunosuppressive agents • Infectious agents • HIV, HTLV-1, EBV, HCV, HBV • Connective tissue diseases • SLE, RA, Sjogren’s • Immunodeficiency's • Cryoglobulinemia • IBD treated with Azathioprine • Unexplained “B” symptoms • Lymphadenopathy

  9. HIV and NHL • AIDS-related lymphoma is generally divided into three type: • Systemic non-Hodgkin lymphoma (most common) • Primary CNS lymphoma • Primary effusion ("body cavity") lymphomas • HIV immunosuppression and coinfection with EBV seem to drive B cell clonal expansion • 70% of lymphomas in HIV have mutations resulting in deregulation of BCL-6 proto-oncogene • Diffuse lymph node involvement is considered much less common • Marrow involvement 30% of time • thus consider marrow biopsy if no other sites • 80% present with Stage IV disease

  10. Clinical Presentation • “B” symptoms • more common in patients with aggressive and highly aggressive histologies (47%), especially in those with hepatic and extranodal involvement. • In contrast, less than 25% of patients with indolent lymphomas have B symptoms • Systemic complaints of fatigue, malaise, and pruritus occur less frequently in fewer than 10% • Bone pain or gastrointestinal symptoms may indicate extranodal involvement in these areas   • > 2/3 of patients with NHL present with peripheral LAD • CNS involvement • lethargy, focal neurologic symptoms, seizures, or paralysis • Rare - spinal cord compression, meningitis

  11. Physical Exam • Lymph Nodes • HEENT • Waldeyer’s Ring involvement in NHL>HL • CNS Lymphomas can affect cranial nerves • Chest • SVC Syndrome, pleural effusions • Abd/pelvis • Retroperitoneal, mesenteric, pelvic nodes in NHL>HL • If large enough, leads to nausea, early satiety, anorexia • GU • Testicular masses (men >60yo NHL is #1 malignancy of testes) • CNS

  12. Labs/Imaging • CBC w/ differential and smear for evaluation Unexplained anemia, thrombocytopenia, or leukopenia due to extensive bone marrow infiltration or hypersplenism from splenic involvement • Renal and hepatic function, including LDH • Hypercalcemia (present in 15% but not usually symptomatic) • Hyperuricemia causing symptoms of gout or nephrolithiasis are unusual at presentation • certainly a concern following treatment of a rapidly proliferative NHL • Testing for HIV, HBV, and HCV (in select patients) • CXR • Mediastinal involvement, SVC compression, effusions • Intrathoracic involvement HL>NHL, but parenchymal involvement NHL>HL • CT Abd/Pelvis • Particularly for Staging • BM Biopsy often considered especially when biopsy would be otherwise difficult to obtain • Lumbar puncture (if CNS involvement suspected)

  15. FNA vs Excisional Biopsy • Accurate histopathologic evaluation of sufficient neoplastic tissue, preferably an intact lymph node, is critical. Although a tissue diagnosis can be suggested by fine needle aspiration (FNA), an excisional biopsy is often required in order to confirm the FNA findings of “lymphoma”5 • Only an excisional biopsy of an intact node consistently allows sufficient tissue for histologic, immunologic, molecular biologic assessment, and classification • If no peripheral lymph nodes accessible for biopsy, consider CT guided biopsy vs laproscopic evaluation
