Abstract

We describe a 37-y-old male with advanced HIV disease who was diagnosed with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura after MRI of the brain revealed reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy. We discuss reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy as a diagnostic clue in HIV-infected patients with multi-organ system disease.
