The development of cognitive impairment is a frequent complication over the course of HIV infection that can be present in over 20% of the patients in advanced stages of the illness. There is a clear need for screening instruments that allows the clinician to identify easily this condition. This paper reviews the three-paper and pencil and the three computer-based screening tests that have been developed for this purpose. The main features and the possibility of cross-cultural adaptation are discussed.
