CT detected clinically significant neuropathology among our study patients. Because lesions and mass effect were associated with nonfocal as well as focal presentations, CT is indicated in every neurologically symptomatic patient with HIV infection or risk factors for infection. Because HIV-related diseases can progress rapidly, repeat CT is recommended even in patients with recent scans.
