Purpose of review: The purpose of this paper is to review current animal models that may be useful for studying cancer associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection. Recent findings: Several animal models, primarily using mice and monkeys, have been developed that recapitulate aspects of the pathology of various malignancies in human acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Studies reviewed here help to elucidate the biology of Kaposi sarcomagenesis and non-Hodgkin lymphomagenesis. Improved understanding through current and future models will better enable clinicians to manage and treat these malignancies. Summary: A number of potential useful models exist that may facilitate improved understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of cancers associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection.
