Abstract

The central nervous system may be affected by AIDS in the form of infections or neoplasia and by HIV itself. The spine and spinal cord are involved more commonly than documented. MR imaging is the most sensitive imaging technique for the detection of AIDS-related abnormalities in the spine and spinal cord. The early detection by spinal imaging will allow the prompt initiation of the appropriate therapy.
