INTRODUCTION: Focal manifestation of mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) may occur in AIDS patients after initiation HAART therapy. Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome (IRIS) can occur within three months of initiation of HAART therapy and can unmask MAC infections that have been present prior to the initiation of HAART. MAC associated IRIS manifests as fever, cough, night sweats, dyspnea, weight loss, hemoptysis and painful lymphadenitis that occurs four to eight weeks after HAART. Isolated pulmonary MAC infection is uncommon even though colonization in lungs is quite common and may be predictive of disseminated disease.
