The proportion of tuberculosis manifested by immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) after HAART has not been established. We describe the incidence and clinical features of tuberculosis manifested by IRIS after HAART in an intermediate tuberculosis burden area. The findings suggest that a significant proportion of the tuberculosis occurring early after starting HAART is manifested by IRIS.
