It is well known that there is an increased risk of malignancy in individuals who are Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositive. This is particularly true with regard to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) defining malignancies such as Kaposi sarcoma, high grade B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and invasive carcinoma of the cervix, and non-AIDS defining/ AIDS-associated malignancies such as Hodgkin lymphoma, anal carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctivae. HIV as well as AZT (azidothydimine/zidovudine) an antiretroviral agent are known to cause of myelodysplasia. However, there are no reports of the myelodysplasia evolving to CML. Other risk factors including radiation and immunosuppression do not play a role with regard to this association. It is therefore plausible to assume that the association between CML and HIV is likely to be coincidental rather than causal.Online Journals are scholarly and peer reviewed journals.
