dc.description.abstractMycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is frequently isolated from patients with late complications of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), especially in North America and Europe. However, its isolation from the central nervous system (CNS) has been seldom reported in these countries. MAC infections in AIDS patients in African and Latin American countries are believed to be uncommon. We report the isolation of MAC from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 11 AIDS patients out of 1723 (0.63%) seen at Centro de Referência e Treinamento - AIDS, São Paulo and discuss the significance of its isolation.en
dc.description.abstractO complexo Mycobacterium avium (CMA) é frequentemente isolado de pacientes com complicações tardias de Síndrome de Imunodeficiência Adquirida (AIDS), especialmente na América do Norte e Europa. Entretanto, existem poucos relatos do isolamento deste complexo a partir do sistema nervoso central (SNC) nestes países. Acredita-se que infecções pelo CMA sejam raras entre pacientes portadores de AIDS em países da África e América Latina. Neste trabalho relatamos o isolamento do CMA do líquor de 11 pacientes portadores de AIDS dentre 1723 (0.63%) atendidos no Centro de Referência e Treinamento -AIDS, de São Paulo, e discutimos a significância deste
