HIV dementia (HIVD) is among the most common and most feared neurological complications of AIDS. In vitro studies have identified a constellation of potentially neurotoxic inflammatory and non-inflammatory pathways, one or more of which could underlie HIVD. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies can distinguish between inflammatory and non-inflammatory pathways in vivo and suggest that either or both might be active in different patients or at… CONTINUE READING
