Diagnostic neuropathology is an integral part of clinical neurology for an insight into pathobiology of the disease and effective translation of this knowledge to the management of the patient. With the emergence of new diseases and re-emergence of old disorders with new face, timely and informed recognition of these are essential. The advances in technology and emergence of new diagnostic armamentarium have brought to light varied manifestations of the well known neurological disorders.

For a practicing neurologist and a student of neurology, a multi-disciplinary approach to disease and close academic interaction with specialists in various branches has become more of a necessity than just an academy curiosity. To share the knowledge from the field of Neuropathology and make it easily accessible to the neurology residents and practicing neurologist without wading through overwhelmingly voluminous literature, Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology is introducing a subsection, Neuropathology series. Renowned neuropathologists and neurobiologists, with expertise in their respective fields are being invited to contribute a comprehensive article, keeping in sight the needs of trainees and yet present a state of the art information. It is envisaged to publish one review in each issue under the subsection.

We hope the readers of Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology will find the effort informative and useful to further their knowledge.

The first of the series is 'changing pattern of HIV-associated neuropathology' contributed by a trio of internationally famous neuropathologists who have contributed extensively. The topic is chosen in view of topical interest in HIV/AIDS and its changing face with the advent of HAART in India. Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome is usually associated with aggravation of clinical symptoms in the course of treatment of HIV/AIDS and concurrent opportunistic infections. It is forgotten that similar situation occurs even in the absence of HIV and immune status is not investigated with CD4/CD8 lymphocyte counts to look into the immune status of the patient with infections of nervous system and the immune modulations that take place following specific antimicrobeal therapy. It is the phenomenological understanding of the pathobiology, which is essential for effective management of the patient at bedside in neurology wards.
