Ventriculitis: a rare case of primary cerebral toxoplasmosis in AIDS patient and literature review.
Braz J Infect Dis 2008; 12(1):101-4BJ

Abstract

Cerebral toxoplasmosis remains the most important neurological opportunistic infection and the most common cause of intracerebral mass lesion in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). We report a case of an adult AIDS patient with an atypical pattern of toxoplasma encephalitis, presenting with ventriculitis and obstructive hydrocephalus without any focal parenchymal lesion.
