Abstract: The incidence of non-AIDS-related cancers (NADCs) in the AIDS-population has surpassed that of the general population. HIV significantly increases an individual's chances of reactivation of latent tuberculosis (TB) infection and progression to active TB disease. Both HIV, TB and CA present with increased FDG uptake in involved lymph nodes (LNs). The aim of this study was to assess the existence of quantitative differences in FDG uptake by lymph nodes in HIV+/TB-/CA- patients, TB+/HIV-/CA-, TB+/HIV+/CA- patients and HIV-/TB-/CA+ patients.
