Figure 4: Lymphocytic meningitis may be detected in the brain of asymptomatic HIV-positive patients who die from HIV-unrelated causes (H/E) (a). Anti TN3 antibody highlights the condition of immune activation (b) that may be the cause of the presence of increased amounts of cytokines (anti-TNF- antibody) (c). In situ-PCR allows detection of HIV-1-DNA within the nucleus (arrow) of a CD-68 positive cell (d).
