What parts of the body does AIDS-related lymphoma affect?

AIDS-related lymphomas are cancers that affect your lymph system, which is widespread throughout your body. For example, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma - the most common AIDS-related lymphoma found in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - typically begins in your lymph nodes and may appear in your spleen, bone marrow, and other tissues where lymphocytes (certain white blood cells) are found. Another type of AIDS-related lymphoma, known as primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, develops in your spinal cord and brain.
