Aids and seizures

Question

Do people with aids have problems with seizures?

Answer

Hello,

It's indeed possible for someone with AIDS to have seizures. For instance, central nervous system toxoplasmosis, an AIDS-related opportunistic infection, can lead to seizures. There are, however, many non-AIDS-related causes for seizures as well: epilepsy or head trauma, for instance. Anyone who has had a seizure deserves a full medical workup to determine the cause.
