Abstract: There is now ample evidence that human immunodeficiency virus infects the central nervous system and is responsible for the dementia/subacute encephalopathy syndrome associated with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. ~-5 HIV has been isoiated from the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with neurologic symptoms and no clinical evidence of immunodeficiency? We recently diagnosed HIV infection in an infant with a progressive spastic diparesis and dementia, with onset at 6 months of age. There was no evidence of immunodeficiency (i.e.. failure to thrive or opportunistic infection) at the time of initial evaluation.
