Description

This book is directed towards the physician who is caring for the HIV infected patient with complications that have affected any part of the nervous system, namely brain, spinal cord, nerve or muscle.

The complications discussed in this volume include those related to HIV itself, those related to other organisms to which the patient is susceptible because of depressed immunity and those resulting as a consequence of antiretroviral drugs.

Features:
* ""User friendly"" diagnostic approach
* Succinct and neurologically relevant summary of the virological, immunological and clinical aspects of systemic HIV disease
* New HIV related neurological complications are described, for example cerebrovascular diseases
* New treatments for HIV related neurological complications, for example highly active antiretroviral therapy with adjuvant treatments for AIDS dementia complex
