Caption: Brain atrophy in AIDS, coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The brain (orange) is smaller than normal, and is surrounded by blue and black regions in which the tissue has degraded. AIDS is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This attacks the immune system, making the patient more susceptible to infections and allowing normally harmless micro-organisms to become pathogenic. Several drugs are available that can slow the progression of the disease, but there is no cure or vaccine.
