A profile of progressive neurological symptoms referred to collectively as HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND) has been found to be linked to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV- 1) with symptoms implicating several cognitive domains, including attention, learning, memory, affect and motor functioning. Neuropsychological testing indicates that around fifty percent of HIV patients, in antiretroviral therapy, present evidence of mild cognitive impairment (MCI)/HIV dementia which implies that prevalence was unchanged from the pre- to the potent antiretroviral period, although incidence of MCI had increased and HIV dementia decreased. In children and adolescents presenting HIV, the status of stimulant treatment fot cognitive, behavioral and quality-of-life deficits remains an expectancy, rather than a guarantee of long-term improvement . The syndrome, HAND, presents a spectrum of neurocognitive-neurologic deficits characterized, on the one hand, by poor concentration, memory impairments and psychological sluggishness, and on the other hand, by psychomotor retardation, deficits in fine motor control, balance and posture problems with accompanying clumsiness, and tremors. The behavioral deficits include apathy, flatness of affect, lethargy and loss of spontaneity.
