Beschreibung

Objective: To analyze differences in neuropsychological test results of
former intravenous drug abusers, who were divided into 2 groups based on
the presence or absence of HIV-1 infection. Methods: Higher-level
cognitive functions were assessed with neuropsychological tests in 40
former drug abusers (20 with and 20 without HIV-1 infection). Results:
As compared to individuals without infection, patients with HIV-1
infection showed significantly poorer performance in areas related to
attention, learning, working memory, verbal fluency, information
processing, problem solving, and flexibility. Conclusion: Independently
of the effect of drug addiction, HIV infection was associated with
cognitive alterations in all the areas examined.
