Abstract

We report two young adults with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), one who presented with multiple ischemic cerebral infarctions and the other who presented with multiple episodes of transient neurologic deficit. Both patients had pulmonary hypertension and a patent foramen ovale (PFO) by echocardiogram. To our knowledge, this is the first report describing HIV-associated pulmonary hypertension and PFO in HIV infected patients with presumed embolic cerebrovascular disease.
