Peripheral nerve complications of HIV-1 infection
Neuropathy in HIV infection can occur due to a direct effect of HIV itself, opportunistic infections, neoplasms, or medication toxicity. Peripheral nerve issues are one of the most common neurologic complications of HIV infection. Painful sensory neuropathy, AIDP, CIDP, autonomic neuropathy, polyradiculopathy, mononeuropathies, mononeuritis multiplex, cranial neuropathies, and ALS-like motor neuropathy can be seen with HIV.
