Central Nervous System (CNS) involvement, whether primary by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus--HIV--itself, or secondary (toxoplasmosis or lymphoma) is remarkably frequent in AIDS, in 40 to 70% of cases, depending upon the author. In order to study the natural history of this illness, a cohort of 25 asymptomatic seropositive patients have been established.… (More)
In an attempt to determine factors of predictive value in HIV (human immuno-deficiency virus) seropositive patients, particular attention was payed to symptoms indicating early involvement of the central nervous system (CNS). A cohort of healthy carriers was thus constituted. Follow-up will be carried out every six month including clinical, biological as… (More)
