The risk for developing clinical neurosyphilis in this circumstance is unknown. CSF abnormalities consistent with neurosyphilis should be treated using standard neurosyphilis treatment regimens. CSF examination should be performed in persons with neurologic or ocular signs or symptoms, active tertiary syphilis, and treatment failure. CSF examination is also recommended for HIV-infected persons with late-latent syphilis, including those with syphilis of unknown duration. Some specialists recommend CSF examination for all HIV-infected persons with syphilis regardless of stage, particularly if serum RPR is 1:32 or with a CD4+ count of

Therefore, certain specialists recommend discontinuing chronic maintenance therapy if patients no longer have signs and symptoms of microsporidiosis and have a sustained (e.g., >6 months) increase in their CD4+ counts to levels >200 cells/L after ART (BIII) (245). Treatment for ocular microsporidiosis should be continued indefinitely because recurrence or relapse might follow discontinuation of treatment (BIII). Whether treatment of other manifestations can be safely discontinued after immune restoration with ART is unknown; however, such a practice is reasonable, based on experience with discontinuation of secondary prophylaxis (chronic maintenance therapy) for other OIs present during advanced HIV disease.

This should begin with routine discussion of sexual behaviors. The occurrence of syphilis in an HIV-infected person is an indication of high-risk behavior and should prompt intensified counseling messages and strong consideration of referral for behavioral intervention. The resurgence of syphilis among persons with HIV infection in the United States underscores the importance of primary prevention of syphilis among persons with HIV infection. Persons undergoing screening or treatment for syphilis also should be evaluated for all common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) (529). Providers should discuss client-centered risk reduction messages and provide specific actions that can reduce the risk for acquiring sexually transmitted infections and for transmitting HIV (529,548--550). Routine serologic screening for syphilis is recommended at least annually for all sexually active HIV-infected persons, with more frequent screening (every 3--6 months) for those with multiple partners, unprotected intercourse, sex in conjunction with illicit drug use, methamphetamine use, or partners who participate in such activities (529,551).

Whether JCV is latent in the CNS or whether PML results from temporally more proximate hematogenous dissemination in those who have this disease is unknown. Protection is presumably conferred by active, effective immunosurveillance. Therefore, the only effective way to prevent disease is to prevent progressive HIV-related immunosuppression with ART (AIII). JCV likely continues as a silent productive infection in the kidney in many persons, and this might increase in the presence of immunosuppression.

Among patients with mild disease, some clinicians might opt to withhold therapy unless symptoms persist for more than several days. As with non-HIV-infected patients, the optimal treatment of campylobacteriosis among persons with HIV infection is poorly defined. For mild-to-moderate campylobacteriosis, initiating therapy with a fluoroquinolone (e.g., ciprofloxacin) or a macrolide (e.g., azithromycin), pending susceptibility test results, and treating for 7 days is a reasonable approach (BIII). Patients with bacteremia should be treated for >2 weeks (BIII), and adding a second active agent (e.g., an aminoglycoside) might be prudent (CIII). Increasing resistance to fluoroquinolones makes the choice of therapy especially problematic.

The focal or multifocal nature of the pathology is responsible for the consistency of clinical presentations with distinct focal symptoms and signs rather than as a more diffuse encephalopathy or dementia, which is rare (1169). Because the demyelinating lesions might involve different brain regions, the specific deficits vary from patient to patient. PML manifests as focal neurological deficits, usually with insidious onset and steady progression. Spinal cord involvement appears rare (1168). Although lesions can be multiple, often one predominates clinically. Any region of the CNS might be involved, but some areas seem to be more favored, including the occipital lobes (with hemianopia), frontal and parietal lobes (hemiparesis and hemisensory deficits), and cerebellar peduncles and deep white matter (dysmetria and ataxia). Additionally, because the individual lesions expand concentrically or along white matter tracts, initial symptoms and signs often begin as "partial" deficits (e.g., weakness of one leg) that worsen and involve a larger territory (e.g., evolution to hemiparesis).

Placental malaria also has been associated with increased expression of CCR5 receptors in placental macrophages (1234) and increased viral load (1235), raising the possibility of placental malaria leading to increased MTCT of HIV. Mother-to-child HIV transmission. One study in Uganda demonstrated increased MTCT in women with placental malaria (1236), but studies from Kenya did not demonstrate this association (1237,1238). However, data concerning the effect of malaria during pregnancy on the risk for MTCT of HIV are conflicting.

Approximately 8%--12% of monoinfected patients spontaneously convert from a positive to a negative HBeAg and a positive anti-HBe per year (981). Spontaneous conversion rates in HIV-infected patients appear to be lower. Seroconversion marks a transition from active disease to an inactive carrier state (980). Patients who are HBe-Ag seropositive usually have high HBV DNA levels (>20,000 IU/mL) and abnormal levels of ALT. This transition can be spontaneous or associated with effective HBV treatment. In some instances, increased levels of ALT might precede a decline in HBV DNA that is accompanied by the loss of HBeAg and development of anti-HBe.

Symptoms of meningitis are headache and progressive lethargy. The CSF profile demonstrates a low glucose with elevated protein and a lymphocytic pleocytosis. Focal pneumonia is most common in those with CD4+ counts >250 cells/L, whereas the other syndromes usually occur in more immunosuppressed patients. These are focal pneumonia, diffuse pneumonia (presenting as apparent PCP), cutaneous involvement, meningitis, liver or lymph node involvement, and positive coccidioidal serology tests without evidence of localized infection. Among persons with HIV infection, six common syndromes have been described (634).

In one study of HIV-seropositive women treated for high-grade CIN, low-dose intravaginal 5-fluorouracil (i.e., 2 grams twice weekly for 6 months) reduced the short-term risk for recurrence (948). HIV-seropositive women are at high risk for recurrent CIN after therapy, and HIV-seropositive men and women are at high risk for recurrent AIN. However, clinical experience with this therapy is too limited to provide a recommendation for use and no follow-up study to confirm these observations has been reported. Preventing recurrence requires careful follow-up of patients after treatment. Patients should be monitored with cytologic screening according to published guidelines and, when indicated, colposcopic examination for recurrent lesions (AI) (923,947). One study documented that women receiving ART are less likely to have recurrence of CIN compared with women who are not receiving treatment (949), but treatment for CIN should not be considered an indication for ART.
