Neuro- AIDS

Neuro-AIDS refers to any neurologic condition occurring as a result of HIV infection. The Mount Sinai Neuro-AIDS Program provides compassionate, comprehensive care to HIV-positive patients with neurological disorders. These conditions include dementia, neuropathy, brain infections, and disorders of the spinal cord and muscle. HIV can affect any part of the nervous system, such as the brain, spinal cord, nerves, or muscle. Depending on which part is involved, symptoms of neurologic disease in HIV-infected individuals may include memory loss, headache, dizziness, weakness, numbness, pain, vision changes, or trouble walking. Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL), occur only in patients with advanced AIDS. Other neurologic conditions, such as HIV-associated neuropathy and HIV-associated dementia, occur even in patients with well-controlled HIV.
