Abstract

Corticosteroids are the mainstay of therapy for immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). However, little is known about how to treat IRIS unresponsive to steroids. We report a patient with HIV-TB coinfection who was unresponsive to first prednisolone and then infliximab but whose IRIS resolved with adalimumab.
