The aim of this study was to establish whether neuroelectrophysiological anomalies are predictive of the neurological course of the disease. The virus of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in Humans (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1, HIV1) has a special neurotropism that appears even in the early stages of the infection, through subtle and often clinically undetectable disturbances of the central and peripherical nervous system. Several neurophysiological techniques have proved to be sensitive enough to reveal such subclinical alterations in neurologically asymptomatic HIV1 seropositive subjects.
