Sir,

I thank the authors of the correspondence for their interest in the article and for emphasizing the association of human immunodeficiency virus-autoimmune deficiency syndrome (HIV-AIDS) and lymphoma.[1] Indeed, it was a mistake that we did not mention the HIV status of the patient in the case report. We had done the HIV screening in this patient and it was found to be negative. We have not done the other confirmatory and ancillary tests for the HIV infection. I agree that HIV positivity in the patient with a peripheral nerve lymphoma would have made the case even more unique.[2] But even now, the reports of peripheral nerve lymphoma have been far and few between and the present case is only the twelfth reported case of peripheral nerve lymphoma and the second such report in the radial nerve.
