Answer

Toxoplasma encephalopathy accounts for as many as 40% of HIV-positive patients with neurologic disease who present with a subacute headache, findings of subtle to remarkable encephalopathy, and, often, focal neurological complaints/findings. Rarely, this may be the presenting symptom complex of profound immune suppression due to HIV infection.
