This review discusses publications in the past year that bear on human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in children, including studies of epidemiology, and mother-to-child transmission of infection. Recently described clinical presentations and neuropathologic observations, as well as some promising therapeutic approaches, are also discussed. Lastly, a fairly extensive section on pathogenesis of HIV-1 infection of the nervous system is included which draws on the virologic literature, as these reports may have been less accessible to pediatricians.
