Tom, who has AIDS, has been diagnosed with something called
mastoiditis. It is some sort of infection inside his skull
near the back of the head (from what I understood, as Tom
labored breathlessly to tell me of the diagnosis). It has
not affected his brain, but has affected his hearing and has
thrown his immune system for a loop.

Has anyone ever heard of this? Has anyone heard of it as a
symptom of AIDS.

Mary, watching yet another friend die.
