      HIV ENCEPHALITIS ASSOCIATED WITH NEUROTOXOPLASMOSIS (Abstract): CNS infections represent a group of life threatening diseases that present with multiple and different clinical and imaging manifestations, becoming a challenging issue for diagnosticians. HIV encephalitis, also known as AIDS encephalopathy or AIDS dementia complex, is the most common CNS complication in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV itself or a variety of opportunistic agents as Toxoplasma gondii, John Cunningham virus, Cryptococcus neoformans lead directly to different pathologies of the central nervous system (CNS). In this article our objective is to underline the distinctive imagining features presented in the cases of HIV encephalitis and to point the characteristics that led to developing neurotoxoplasmosis (5,7).
