Abstract

Cynics would say it has taken the scientific community a long time to achieve very little progress in our understanding of HIV-mediated CNS damage. We cannot yet say with surity how neuronal function is affected. However, when viewed through the perspective that retroviral diseases of the human nervous system are newly recognized diseases, significant progress has been made in the 3 years since HIV infection was noted within the CNS. We have a lot to learn about how retroviruses damage the CNS, but at least the questions are better defined.
