INTRODUCTION: Immune reconstitution syndrome (IRIS) is a dysregulated inflammatory response to an antigen that occurs when there is a rapid shift of host immunity from an immunosuppressive state to a proinflammatory state. This is frequently described in HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy, as well as in solid organ transplant recipients. However, this is less well described in patients with hematological malignancies after chemotherapy recovering from neutropenia.
