A marked decrease in incidence has been observed for most central nervous system opportunistic infections after the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy. In developing countries, where highly active antiretroviral therapy is still unavailable, unusual patients are encountered. We are reporting an untreated patient who, in addition to progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, also had disseminated tuberculosis and oral candidiasis. Neuroimaging showed a very extensive white matter and gray matter involvement producing a picture of "JC virus encephalitis".
