Abstract

Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) affects 30-43% of HIV and tuberculosis (TB) co-infected patients after starting highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Pericarditis and pericardial effusion are rare manifestations of IRIS. We report a case of HIV-TB related IRIS that developed pericardial involvement. This complication resolved after treatment with ibuprofen. Antituberculous treatment and HAART were not interrupted.
