Abstract

Movement disorders occur in some patients with cerebral toxoplasmosis with HIV‐1 infection. Such movement disorders have not been described in patients with cerebral toxoplasmosis without HIV‐1 infection. This report discusses their diagnostic features, aspects of management, and possible mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of the movement disorders.
