KeywordsToxoplasmosis, HIV, Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, Inappropriate ADH Syndrome
The authors describe the unusual case of a 63-year-old patient who was referred with fever and lethargy, and was found to be hyponatraemic.
The patient subsequently developed hemiparesis, and neuroradiology showed several space-occupying brain lesions. The cause was later
identified as cerebral toxoplasmosis in undiagnosed Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
