Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is increasingly common today and the diversity of its clinical presentation makes the diagnosis difficult. The virus can cause neurologic involvement in the entire nervous system through direct action or opportunistic infections. HIV-associated neurocognitive disease, HIV encephalopathy, HIV-associated vacuolar myelopathy, and distal symmetric polyneuropathy are some of the neurologic involvements. The aim of this article was to present patients who were admitted to Pamukkale University Hospital, Neurology Clinic with neurologic symptoms as the first clinical evidence of HIV infection, and to compare their patterns of neurologic involvement with patterns in the literature

Keywords: HIV encephalopathy, cerebral toxoplasmosis, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy
