Figure 1: (a) Multinucleated giant cells (MGC) in the cerebral white matter of a patient with HIV encephalitis. Note the nuclei forming an incomplete circle at the periphery of the cytoplasm. H/E. (b) In HIVencephalitis the cytoplasm of a number of MGC contains HIV. This can be revealed by the specific antibody p24.
