The article analyzes current data on the incidence, various treatment options and prognosis of cervical cancer in combination with HIV-infection. The relationship between the development of cervical cancer and the human immunodeficiency virus has been established. Antiretroviral therapy in patients receiving standard treatments for cervical cancer does not allow them to be carried out in full. This fact, combined with a compromised immune status of patients, leads to a high incidence of tumor progression and relapse.
