The article discusses the application of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and chemotherapy on patients with Hodgkin's disease and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It cites a case of a 40-year-old man diagnosed with HIV infection on routine screening in 2005. On the initial hospitalization, the application of HAART continued along with the initial use of prophylactic antibiotics. The patient also had an ABVD treatment in May 2008.
