The spectrum of neurological complications that occurs in the setting of HIV-1 infection includes AIDS-dementia complex, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, brain lymphoma, toxoplasma encephalitis, and cryptococcal meningitis. We present a 36-year-old man with subacute multifocal neurologic signs who had a 3-year history of HIV-1 infection and a year history of left optic neuritis. The clinical presentation, CSF findings, and neuroradiological features in our patient were compatible with multiple sclerosis (MS), and hence he represented a rare case of HIV-related MS-like illness. Key Words: Multiple-sclerosis-like illness, HIV
