Movement disorders in AIDS: Infective, neoplastic and iatrogenic causes

Academic Article


  • We present seven cases of movement disorders encountered in patients with AIDS at a national referral centre over a 4 year period. These include cases of chorea athetosis due to cerebral toxoplasmosis, progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy, cerebral infarction due to Herpes zoster infection and hypoglycaemia secondary to pentamidine therapy, wing beating tremor as a result of primary cerebral lymphoma, and two cases of drug induced akinetic rigid syndrome. © 1995.
