Tuberculosis and the Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome (IRIS)

Bob Colebunders


Names l.jpg
Names

  • Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS)

  • Immune restoration disease (IRD)

  • Paradoxical reactions


Pathogenesis l.jpg
Pathogenesis

  • Increased lymphoproliferative response to mycobacterium antigens in vitro

  • Restoration of cutaneous response to Tuberculin

  • Increased [Il-6], activation markers (CD38)

  • Associated with TNFA-308*1, IL6-174*G


Incidence tb iris l.jpg
Incidence TB/IRIS

Europe and USA

  • Narita et al 36% (Miami, 1998)

  • Wendel et al 11% (Baltimore 2001)

  • Breen et al 29% (London, 2004)

  • Breton et al 43% (Paris, 2004)


Incidence tb iris5 l.jpg
Incidence TB/IRIS

Africa

  • Breton et al: 41%

  • No cases in TB/DOT study in South Africa (20 patients only)

    India

  • Kumarasamy et al: IRIS of 15.2 cases per 100 patient-years

  • Patel et al:TB IRIS more often in patients with active TB at the start of HAART than in those without active TB at the start of HAART (11 [8.73] vs. 3 [2.32%], respectively; p = 0.0489).


Risk factors for tb iris l.jpg
Risk factors for TB/IRIS

  • Starting ARV’s within 6 weeks of TB treatment

  • Disseminated, extra-pulmonary disease

  • Low base line CD4 count

  • Rise in CD4 %

  • Fall in viral load

  • High bacillary burden?


Types of tb iris l.jpg
Types of TB IRIS

  • Patient unknown to have TB at the start of HAART

  • Patient on TB treatment before or at the start of HAART


Timing of iris l.jpg
Timing of IRIS

  • Mean of 15 days after starting HAART

  • Up to months (years)

  • Syndrome lasts for 10-40+ days








Prognosis l.jpg
Prognosis

  • Breton et al: 16 cases of TB/IRIS: 5 ‘severe’ complications

    • Splenic rupture

    • Compressive lymphadenopathy

    • Ureteric obstruction

  • Narita et al: The study found a 6-fold increased risk of subsequent TB relapse in patients who experienced IRIS during early TB treatment.

Differential diagnosis l.jpg
Differential diagnosis blindness: fundoscopy: bilateral papiloedema: IRIS?

  • Side effects of the antiretroviral treatment

  • Drug fever

  • TB infection not responding to standard anti-TB treatment

  • Other concomitant infection

  • Failure of HAART (late IRIS)


Proposed criteria for the diagnosis of iris in hiv patients on antiretroviral therapy l.jpg

Proposed criteria for the diagnosis of IRIS in HIV patients on antiretroviral therapy

French et al


Major criteria l.jpg
Major criteria on antiretroviral therapy

  • Atypical presentation of ‘opportunistic infections or tumours’ in patients responding to antiretroviral therapy

  • Decrease in plasma HIV RNA level by 1log10 copies/mL


Minor criteria l.jpg
Minor criteria on antiretroviral therapy

  • Increased blood CD4 T-cell count after HAART

  • Increase in an immune response specific to the relevant pathogen, e.g. DTH response to mycobacterial antigens

  • Spontaneous resolution of disease without specific antimicrobial therapy or tumour chemotherapy with continuation of anti-retroviral therapy anti-retroviral therapy


Suspected tb iris a tb patient who after starting haart develops either l.jpg
“Suspected TB IRIS”: on antiretroviral therapya TB patient who after starting HAART develops either

  • New persistent fevers (temperature >38.6°C) which last for more than 1 week without an identifiable source (e.g., urine and sputa testing, and other procedures when clinically indicated) or reason (e.g. an allergic reaction)

  • or marked worsening or emergence of intrathoracic lymphadenopathy, pulmonary infiltrates

  • or worsening or emergence of cervical adenopathies/abscesses, or worsening of other tuberculous lesions or manifestations, such as cutaneous peritoneal or central nervous system (CNS) inflammatory pathology.

“Suspected TB IRIS”: on antiretroviral therapya patient who after starting HAART develops TB characterised bythe formation of

  • Large adenopathies

  • Abscesses

  • Miliary TB with large nodules

  • Cavity formation


Confirmed tb iris l.jpg
“Confirmed” TB IRIS on antiretroviral therapy

Same definition as suspected TB IRIS but

  • multi drug resistant TB excluded

    and

  • a satisfactory virological response to ART


Diagnostic investigations l.jpg
Diagnostic investigations on antiretroviral therapy

  • AFB may be be present or absent

  • Viable organisms despite TB treatment since > 2 months may suggest treatment failure

  • Tuberculin skin testing

    • 88% of IRIS negative

    • 33% of non-IRIS negative


Recommendations to prevent tb iris l.jpg
Recommendations to prevent TB IRIS on antiretroviral therapy

  • Exclude TB before starting antiretroviral therapy

  • Treat first the TB and start antiretroviral treatment only once the patient has clinically improved, is tolerating very well his TB treatment

  • Increase awareness about TB IRIS


Treatment recommendations l.jpg
Treatment recommendations on antiretroviral therapy

  • TB treatment should be continued

  • Exclude treatment failure

    • Ensure adequate treatment

    • Ensure adherence to ATT

    • Consider drug resistance


Treatment recommendations31 l.jpg
Treatment recommendations on antiretroviral therapy

  • Drainage

  • Adding prednisolone/NSAIDS may be beneficial

  • Continue HAART in most cases

  • Consider stopping ARV’s if life threatening?
