DEMENTIA AND BEHAVIORAL DISORDERS IN PROGRESSIVE MULTIFOCAL LEUKOENCEPHALOPATHY (PML) -- CASE REPORT

Danielly Bandeira Lopes, Leonardo Caixeta

Resumo


Psychiatric disturbances in Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) are rarely adressed and its study can offer insights into the neurobiology of psychosis. The authors report a case of male patient, 42 years old, HIV positive, with PML and psychotic symptoms. The present case shows the need for regular neurological and neuropsychological evaluations of HIV positive patients and the importance
of studying diseases that cause lesions in the white matter, such as PML, to elucidate the neurobiology of psychosis.
