Resumen

LASSO B, Martín et al. Polyradiculopathy caused by cytomegalovirus in 2 aids patients treated successfully with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.9, pp.1061-1064. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872001000900013.

We report two male patients with AlDS, aged 23 and 30 years old respectively. One was admitted due to a progressive weakness of the left leg and urinary and fecal incontinence. The other was admitted due to a progressive paraparesia without incontinence, but with a severe lumbar pain. In both patients polymerase chain reactions for cytomegalovirus in cerebrospinal fluid were positive. Treatment with ganciclovir, for 21 and 14 days respectively and highly active antiretroviral therapy was started. Both patients experienced recovery of their neurological deficits after 98 and 88 days of therapy, respectively. (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1061-4)
