Neuroimaging features of immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in a patient with AIDS successfully treated for neurocryptococcosis

By Antonio Oscar Flores da Silva Junior and Luciano Zubaran Goldani

Abstract

The use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has significantly reduced the incidence and progression of HIV-associated cryptococcosis. However, an early complication of HAART is the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS), which may affect the CNS.Theauthors report a patient successfully treated for cryptococcosis and HIV who presented a late manifestation of IRIS. Neuroimaging aspects and management of CNS-IRIS in this patient are discussed in this paper
