The Spectrum of Neuro-AIDS Disorders presents, in 36 chapters, the relevant basic knowledge on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and the nervous system. The editors succeeded in acquiring the services of very well-known specialists in the field for every chapter, guaranteeing a deep understanding of the topics with respect to clinical problems and research results.

For physicians who want comprehensive information, as well as for students and informed laymen, the book is easily readable. The prose is easily understandable, although on a high scientific level. The quality of the figures, tables, and illustrations is very good, and they all help to underline and explain the text.
