Abstract

Our results suggest that although cognitive impairment is not characteristic of early HIV infection, there is a subgroup of subjects who perform more poorly than expected. A lower reserve capacity, older age and not being on zidovudine treatment are factors that lower the threshold for neuropsychological abnormalities in cases of early HIV infection.
