Abstract

Neurologic symptoms are common in HIV-infected individuals and result from a wide range of etiologic agents, including HIV itself and opportunistic pathogens. Neurologic syndromes may be presenting features, or occur at any stage of infection, and affect all levels of the neuraxis. The physician caring for AIDS patients must be prepared to recognize these neurologic complications to pursue aggressive diagnosis and, where possible, therapeutic interventions. The possibility of concurrent or unusual pathogens and atypical presentations make care of the AIDS patient with neurologic disease a challenging exercise requiring informed analysis and thoughtful clinical judgment.
