MedGen UID:
61391
Concept ID:

AIDS

A syndrome resulting from the acquired deficiency of cellular immunity caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is characterized by the reduction of the Helper T-lymphocytes in the peripheral blood and the lymph nodes. Symptoms include generalized lymphadenopathy, fever, weight loss, and chronic diarrhea. Patients with AIDS are especially susceptible to opportunistic infections (usually pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections, tuberculosis, candida infections, and cryptococcosis), and the development of malignant neoplasms (usually non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Kaposi sarcoma). The human immunodeficiency virus is transmitted through sexual contact, sharing of contaminated needles, or transfusion of contaminated blood. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0001175
Disease or Syndrome
4.

Toxoplasmosis

A parasitic disease contracted by the ingestion or fetal transmission of toxoplasma gondii. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
21597
Concept ID:
C0040558
Disease or Syndrome
5.

Encephalitis

An inflammatory process affecting the brain parenchyma. Causes include viral infections and less frequently bacterial infections, toxins, and immune-mediated processes. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
4027
Concept ID:
C0014038
Disease or Syndrome
6.

Moderate

Having a medium degree of severity. For quantitative traits, a deviation of between three and four standard deviations from the appropriate population mean. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
525853

Antimicrobial substance

Generically, any agent that destroys microbes. However, usage of the term is increasingly being confined to agents that prevent or reduce the transmission of SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C1136254
Pharmacologic Substance
12.

Central Nervous System Protozoal Infections

Infections of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges by single celled organisms of the former subkingdom known as protozoa. The central nervous system may be the primary or secondary site of protozoal infection. These diseases may occur as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS or arise in immunocompetent hosts. [from MeSH]

Concept ID:
C0752182
Disease or Syndrome
13.

Neurotoxoplasmosis

MedGen UID:
156021
Concept ID:
C0752181
Disease or Syndrome
15.

Meningoencephalitis, Protozoal

a rare and often fatal acute, febrile, purulent inflammation of the brain and meninges caused by certain usually free-living soil and water amebas. [from CRISP]

MedGen UID:
109309
Concept ID:
C0597309
Disease or Syndrome
16.

AIDS Associated Opportunistic Infection

Opportunistic infections found in patients who test positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The most common include PNEUMOCYSTIS PNEUMONIA, Kaposi's sarcoma, cryptosporidiosis, herpes simplex, toxoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and infections with Mycobacterium avium complex, Microsporidium, and Cytomegalovirus. [from MeSH]

Concept ID:
C0035369
Disease or Syndrome
18.

Disease caused by parasite

Toxoplasma encephalitis

Infections of the BRAIN caused by the protozoan TOXOPLASMA gondii that primarily arise in individuals with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES (see also AIDS-RELATED OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS). The infection may involve the brain diffusely or form discrete abscesses. Clinical manifestations include SEIZURES, altered mentation, headache, focal neurologic deficits, and INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch27, pp41-3) [from MeSH]
