By A V Carneiro, J Ferro, C Figueiredo, L Costa, J Campos and F de Pádua

Abstract

One of the neurologic complications of human immunodeficiency virus infection are cerebrovascular accidents. In HIV infected patients, ischemic strokes have been reported secondary to nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis and cerebral arteritis. We describe an unusual cause of stroke in HIV-1 infection: Herpes Zoster ophtalmicus with contralateral hemiplegia.One of the neurologic complications of human immunodeficiency virus infection are cerebrovascular accidents.
