Central nervous system (CNS) toxoplasmosis is an important infectious complication of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) which appears to result from reactivation of a previously acquired infection and requires prolonged treatment. A 31-year-old male presented in a drowsy mental state and with an unstable gait. Computerized tomographic (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed multiple nodular lesions in the cerebrum and cerebellum; the seropositivity for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) and high serum IgG toxoplasma titers were also demonstrated. A presumptive diagnosis of CNS toxoplasmosis was based on neurological signs and neuroradiological findings. This was confirmed by improvement in both clinical and neuroradiological pictures during treatment with pyrimethamine and clindamycin. Four months later, however the patient died of intracranial hemorrhage and massive upper GI bleeding.
