Abstract

A patient with hemiballism-hemichorea as the initial manifestation of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is described. Movement disorders in AIDS have not been frequently reported. Possible etiologies and therapeutic trials are presented. To our knowledge this is the first case report of hemiballism-hemichorea as the initial presenting feature of an AIDS patient in Puerto Rico.
