CSF escape is an uncommon phenomenon seen in patients where there is discordance in Plasma and CSF viral load. Its presentation can vary from being asymptomatic to cognitive dysfunction and can also be associated with opportunistic CNS infection. Opsoclonus Myoclonus Ataxia is very rare entity usually associated with neuroblastoma and viral illness. This syndrome has not been describes as a presentation of CSF Viral escape. Here, we present a case of Opsoclonus Myocolnus Ataxia Syndrome (OMAS) in People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA), associated with CSF Escape. Moreover, in this lecture, we're providing a postulation for the plausible cause behind CSF escape leading to the OMAS.
What will audience learn from your presentation?
• The audience will learn about Opsoclonus Myoclonus Ataxia syndrome, which in itself is a rare presentation..
• The audience will learn about CSF escape, which is an even rarer finding, especially for HIV infection.
• This presentation will focus on our case where we analyse and review the data and literature available on the topic, which shall definitely help the audience with their future researches.
• This presentation will include hypothesis/theory for the mechanism of precipitation of this rare phenomenon, that has only been reported a handful number of times in the history of medical research.
• This presentation will be providing an amalgamation of essential information on the aforementioned topic, that shall prove to be very helpful for the audience.
