A 77-year-old Japanese man with disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) disease due to anti-interferon-gamma autoantibodies received rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone (R-CHOP) chemotherapy because of non-Hodgkin lymphoma complication. The hepatobiliary nodules due to MAC resolved with R-CHOP and multidrug antimycobacterial treatment. R-CHOP could serve as an alternative adjunctive therapy for patients with anti-interferon-gamma autoantibodies.
