3 weeks ago, 30 year old Celeste was admitted to the hospital with marked confusion.  She was diagnosed with HIV which made us suspicious she had either Cryptococcal Meningitis or Toxoplasmosis causing her confusion.  Her spinal tap and Toxo test were negative so we provided supportive care and she gradually improved.  She returned today for follow-up and was doing reasonably well although she preferred to let her husband talk for her.  She will begin her HIV medication today and we will recheck her in 2 weeks.  Her husband has been very supportive and will make sure that she takes her medication daily.
