Abstract

Neurobehavioral functioning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were investigated in 25 patients with various Centers for Disease Control (CDC) stages of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and in a control group of seven normal subjects. Unequivocal slowing of information processing speed and cerebral atrophy were related to the stage of HIV infection, with patients in CDC group IV exhibiting the most abnormal findings. Slowing of response speed was directly related to the severity of cerebral atrophy.
