Seizures blamed on AIDS/HIV
Aug 31, 2005
Diagnosed in 1991, then suddenly started having gran mal seizures in 1995. Every test administered comes back NORMAL, but the condition, is blamed on disease! I am 46 years old now. PLEASE give some answer and/or road to go down for an answer, if at all possible. THANK YOU, Roger
Response from Dr. Horwath
Seizures in persons with AIDS are usually caused by some complication like toxoplasmosis, meningitis, enecphalitis, CNS lymphoma or PML. However, there are also cases (like yourself) of people with HIV who have new onset seizures for which no other cause can be found.
