Aims & Objectives: To review the clinical presentation and neuroimaging findings in immunocompromised patients positive for HIV/AIDS. ● Materials & Methods: A total of 7 patients who were positive for HIV/ AIDS underwent MRI and CT brain and MRI spine during a study period of 6 months, presented with different neuroimaging findings which include Toxoplasmosis, TB Arteritis, Cryptococcosis, Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy, HIV Encephalopathy, Spinal Arachnoiditis and Cerebral & Cerebellar Atrophy with dementia. ● Result: 4 patients underwent MRI brain plain and revealed features suggestive of Atrophy, HIV Encephalopathy, PML and Arteritis. 2 patients underwent MRI brain (plain & contrast) & CT brain and showed features suggestive of Cryptococcosis and Toxoplasmosis. 1 underwent MRI spine and showed features in favour of Arachnoiditis.
