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.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

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.
