ABSTRACT
Movement disorders could be a neurological complication of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and may be sometimes represent the initial manifestation of HIV infection. We present the case of a 16 years old male admitted in our department with dystonia - as presenting symptom of HIV encephalitis. In this case, we didn't disclose any opportunistic infections, but basal ganglia lesions and their connections damage are revealed by cerebral imaging.
