Abstract

Patients with HIV_AIDS have an increased risk to develop neurological disorders include a complication
of intracerebral mass. Primary CNS tumors in this condition are rare and difficult to diagnose because it has
uncommon presentation, unusual tumor growth and manifests at a young age in a patient with HIV-AIDS.
Advanced imaging techniques with contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance scans should be used to guide
diagnosis in this condition. in a patient with HIV-AIDS, biopsy should be carried out if standard imaging
showed atypical features or in a patient who has a poor response to empirical treatment for neurotoxoplasmosis.
In this case, we reported a case of A 26 years old male with HIV-AIDS with neurological deficits who later
diagnosed with glioblastoma.
