Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the most common type of AIDS-related lymphoma. This cancer (which includes subtypes such as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma,  B-cell immunoblastic lymphoma, and small noncleaved lymphoma, either Burkitt or Burkitt-like) strikes the lymph system, including the lymph nodes, of some people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Other major types of AIDS-related lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, another type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which attacks the spinal cord and brain.
