A review of the full scope of research on the neurological and neurobehavioral implications of neuro-AIDS including the fields of microbiology and immunology.
Considers the broad scope of effects of HIV/AIDS on the brain and peripheral nervous system (neuro-AIDS), both pre- and post-HAART era. Links basic pathology and pathophysiology research with clinical findings, diagnostic, and assessment techniques in both the CNS and the periphery. Examines the wide range of HIV-associated comorbidities including fungal, viral, syphilitic, and Toxoplasma infections. Covers neurological and neurobehavioral syndromes (dementia, delirium, depressive disorders, fatigue, and peripheral nervous and muscular dysfunction), including diagnosis and treatment. Presents specific information on neuro-AIDS in special populations including women, children, minorities, and older individuals. Explores medico-legal issues, including end-of-life concerns specific to neuro-AIDS patients. Examines the status of neuro-AIDS conditions at the global level.
