Sir,

We thank the readers for their letter and comment. Indeed, defective immunity in an HIV-infected individual predisposes one to the development of multiple tumors, especially hematological malignancies.[1] In this patient, an HIV antigen–antibody test (4th generation test for the p24 antigen and HIV antibody)[2] performed in 2016 after the diagnosis of small B cell lymphoma was found to be negative. We trust this clarifies.
