Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients with comorbid HIV and serious mental illnesses pose particular difficulties for clinicians. Presentation of several mental disturbances can be similar, and often significanlty complicate the management of advancing HIV disease. In this article, we will review the assessment and management of four serious mental conditions in HIV-infected patients: delirium, dementia, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
