Abstract

Six homosexual men with a diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related complex (ARC- CDC IVA/C2) were assessed with a series of neuropsychological and psychiatric tests prior to commencing treatment with zidovudine and again after 5–6 months. Significant improvements were seen in cognitive functioning, mental state and physical health at the second assessment.
