Abstract

A 35‐year‐old woman developed longstanding uveitis and later a uveomeningoencephalitis of unknown origin and died of toxoplasmal brain abscesses. The presence of immunological impairment, human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV‐2) seropositivity, and multinucleated cells in the brain led us to suspect neurotropic properties for HIV‐2 similar to those of HIV‐1.
