Lung biopsy specimen showing mononuclear interstitial infiltration in a child with HIV infection and lymphoid interstitial pneumonitis / pulmonary lymphoid hyperplasia (LIP/PLH). The pathogenesis of LIP/PLH is poorly understood, but Epstein-Barr virus has been implicated as a co-factor in its development (courtesy of Dr. Claire Langston, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas).
