update on case
Mar 22, 2000

i have submitted numerous questions to you regarding pml. most recently i told you of my biopsy showing nada. i went and saw another neurologist who looked at all my mri's and said "hmmm strange". he doesn't feel it was pml due to the fact that the abnormalities show with contrast after 6 months. he is presenting my case at a conference this friday in hopes of gaining more experts insight to what is going on. i'll keep you posted.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Thanks for the update. I, too, thought it was unusual that such a long time had elapsed since your diagnosis and lack of disease progression. Perhaps it was HIV encephalopathy that was misdiagnosed as PML.
