Abstract

We describe a malignant astrocytoma in a patient with AIDS confirmed at autopsy. The object of this report is to draw attention to a further example of an unusual tumour associated with HIV infection. This is the tenth case in the world literature and it is possible that this tumour is represented with a higher than expected frequency in this group of the population. This case and others add malignant astrocytoma to the differential diagnosis of an intracranial space occupying lesion in an AIDS patient.
