Abstract

Neurologic abnormalities are common in HIV-1 infected patients and often represent the dominant clinical manifestation of pediatric AIDS. Although the neurological dysfunction has been directly related to CNS invasion by HIV-1, the pathogenesis of neurologic disorders remains unclear. This review will first discuss the spectrum of potential interactions between HIV-1 and neural (neuronal and glial) cells, in the face of experimental data. Next, we will focus on the role of immune-derived cytokines and other soluble compounds which have been proposed to act as neurotoxic mediators and appear to play a role in the pathogenesis of AIDS-associated neurodegeneration.
