The serum and CSF antibody profiles were investigated in 100 patients with HIV in relation to the type and severity of neurological disease. Among them, 87 were positive for anti-HIV antibodies in the CSF. In 30 of 87 patients detailed analysis by western blot could be performed. In 20 of 30 the profiles were dissimilar, with more of bands being found in(More)
A case of cerebral abscess caused by Fonsecaea pedrosoi is reported in a nonimmunocompromised 15-year-old boy.
