Toxoplasmosis is one of the most common opportunistic infections in HIV-positive patients. The onset of HIV-infection with cerebral toxoplasmosis makes this disease a multidisciplinary problem and requires the participation of doctors of various specialties (infectious disease specialists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, general practitioners, etc.). Early diagnosis and treatment of this disease will reduce the risk of deaths and severe consequences. We carry out an analysis of the clinical case of toxoplasma encephalitis in a HIV-infected patient. We have identified errors in the establishing diagnosis. We have given a detailed account a patient management plan. We also comment on some of the problem early disease detection HIV-infection.
