CNS Toxoplasmosis in the Presence of AIDS

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

One of the most common causes of central nervous system disease in AIDS is toxoplasmosis. When a patient with AIDS has toxoplasmosis involving the brain, it is usually a late manifestation of the AIDS disease process. Although toxoplasmosis lesions may be found anywhere in the brain, they are rare in the spinal cord. Treating central nervous system (CNS) toxoplasmosis requires clinical judgment and good knowledge about the patient’s medical status. Primary empiric therapy is followed by long-term highly active antiretroviral therapy, often continued until the CD4 count is more than 200 cells/uL. The goal of this course is to provide information about toxoplasmosis, including its epidemiology, presentation, and management of infection.
