It was said that Brown was the first person in the world to have overcome HIV infection a decade earlier.Since the disease was seen in bad eyes in those days, due to this, the name of the person recovering from the disease was not disclosed. Such patients were called only patients. For this reason, he was renamed the "Berlin Patient" during a conference to hide Brown's identity, since then he has been identified with the Berlin Patient. He was battling cancer these days after defeating HIV infection but lost it. Brown died of cancer. Brown was also known as the "Berlin Patient".
