Lung cancer (LC) is the third more frequent malignancy in human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV)-infected individuals. The first case of LC in a Cuban HIV-infected patient is presented. It was a squamous cell carcinoma at advanced stage (III-B) and the clinical evolution was unfavorable; however, the patient did not develop acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related events. Most HIV-infected patients with LC are symptomatic at diagnosis, reflecting an advanced disease (stages III-B/IV) between 70 and 90% of cases. Adenocarcinoma is the most frequent histological type. LC represents a new challenge in HIV-infected population, so its prevention, early diagnosis, and management should be included in the long-term follow-up of this group of patients.

Palabras clave: Human immunodeficiency virus-1, HIV, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, AIDS, lung cancer.
