HIV associated dementia

HIV associated dementia (HAD) results from infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS. HAD can cause widespread destruction of the brain's white matter.

This leads to a type of dementia that generally includes impaired memory, apathy, social withdrawal, and difficulty concentrating.

People with HAD often develop movement problems as well. There is no specific treatment for HAD, but AIDS drugs can delay onset of the disease and may help to reduce symptoms.
