The personal experience on neurological disturbances associated with early HIV infection and AIDS is reported. Central nervous system (CNS) involvement occurred during the early stages in 3 cases: 2 patients with HIV-seroconversion (CDC category III) and one patient with persistent generalized lymphadenopathy (PGL, III group CDC, 1986). The patients had HIV acute meningitis. The neurological manifestations in AIDS had high incidence (49 of 83 cases), often with multiple aetiology in single patients. We remark the necessity of an early aetiological diagnosis to address the treatment.
