    Abstract

    © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved. The immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) remains a concern in severely immunosuppressed HIV-infected patients after starting antiretroviral therapy. We present an HIV-infected transgender woman with subcutaneous silicone fillers, who simultaneously developed tuberculosis-associated and silicone-related IRIS. We propose a possible connection between IRIS and the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (Asia).
