Isolated peripheral facial paralysis: indicator of HIV-1 infection in Bangui, Central African Republic
In 10 months in 1988 the authors saw 24 patients (23 Africans; 10 male) with peripheral facial palsy (PFP) in Bangui; 16 were seropositive for HIV-1 infection at the time of presentation and one seroconverted later. No evidence of HIV-2 infection was obtained. PFP was associated with AIDS or ARC in 5 cases but was the only manifestation in 11 cases.D.W.
