|Virus has entered spinal cord and brain ?
Jun 15, 2001
On a recent visit to the doctor for testicular pain, which I still have, they told me the Aids virus has entered the spinal cord, and brain? What does this really mean ? This was a result of a spinal tap.

The HIV virus does not just circulate in the blood. The virus can be found in all parts of the body, including the brain and spinal fluid.
