Cognitive, language, motor and visual symptoms are commonly seen in this setting, with cognitive changes being more prominent, possibly because of the multifocal multiple sclerosis lesions already present in these patients 1.

Corticosteroids have been used by several groups in order to modulate progrrssiva reaction and avoid a catastrophic deterioration, but their use is controversial since they can also potentiate immunosuppression and blunt the JCV specific cellular immune response Primary PML developing in an immunocompetent patient is very rare. Other findings include infected oligodendrocytes with enlarged amphophilic nuclei located at the periphery of the lesions, macrophages containing phagocytosed cellular debris and myelin, and reactive gliosis with enlarged astrocytes The epidemiology of human immunodeficiency virus-associated neurological disease in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy.
