Abstract

Background: A 29-year-young male patient with a history of HIV for approximately 4 years ago was admitted to the department of Internal Medicine for fever, with a headache resistant to analgesics. He also presented nausea without vomiting, and the fever persisted despite antibiotic treatment.

CT scan was carried out, followed by MRI in order to better characterize the lesions.
