A nested multiplex PCR assay was designed for the simultaneous detection of Epstein-Barr virus and Toxoplasma gondii DNA from the cerebrospinal fluid of AIDS patients. T. gondii DNA was detected in 8 of 8 patients with Toxoplasma encephalitis and in 0 of 6 patients without toxoplasmosis, and Epstein-Barr virus DNA was found in 9 of 14 patients with central nervous system lymphoma and in 2 of 38 patients without disease.
