OBJECTIVE. The objective of this article is to introduce the reader to the thoracic manifestations of neoplasms that are related to common oncogenic viruses in HIV-infected patients. We review the pathologic basis of the infections and illustrate the imaging features of their thoracic manifestations. CONCLUSION. The intrathoracic manifestations of oncogenic viral infection in AIDS patients are protean. Understanding their epidemiologic, pathologic, and imaging features is crucial to diagnosing and managing these often-treatable conditions.
