We thank the author for the insightful comments on the potential relationship of HIV with rhabdomyosarcoma. In our case, prior to commencing chemotherapy, the patient's immune status was carefully examined and our patient was HIV negative. We agree that the overlap between cancer and the immune system is fertile ground for our understanding of the pathogenesis, progression, and possible cure of cancer. [1,2]
