  1. Dementia in AIDS patients : incidence and risk factors.

    Article - En anglais

    We determined incidence and future projections of dementia after AIDS onset in 492 homosexual men with AIDS in the Baltimore/Los Angeles sites of the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, 64 of whom developed dementia.

    We studied various risk factors for dementia, including demographic and clinical features, medical history, markers of immune status before AIDS, and zidovudine use.

    During the first 2 years after AIDS, HIV dementia developed at an annual rate of 7%. Overall, 15% of the cohort followed through death developed dementia.

    The median survival after dementia was 6.0 months.
