Chemotherapy may aggravate the immune damage of AIDS with malignant tumors, but chemotherapy is a necessary treatment. One patient with AIDS complicated with Kaposi’s sarcoma and developed severe immune damage and perianal infection after a course of chemotherapy. Sigmoid colostomy and intravenous catheterization were performed. Before the second chemotherapy, autologous bone marrow was collected for preservation, and day 5 after the end of chemotherapy, the autologous bone marrow was transferred back to the port by buried infusion. The bone marrow was preserved before each chemotherapy and the preserved bone marrow was restored after chemotherapy. After 6 times chemotherapy, CD4+ T cells increased and infection around anus healed. It is suggested that the preservation of autologous bone marrow can promote the immune reconstruction after chemotherapy.
