Ugeskr Laeger. 1994 Feb 28;156(9):1313-4. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

Four cases with an apoplectic debut of AIDS are reported. Two of the patients had not earlier been identified as being HIV-positive. In three patients, the underlying cause was probably cerebral toxoplasmosis. It is important to consider AIDS in the differential diagnosis of stroke, particularly in young adults.
