We report the case of a previously healthy man who suffered a disseminated cytomegalovirus infection. He presented with prolonged fever, weight loss of 8 kg, anicteric hepatitis, upper digestive tract bleeding from gastric ulcers, acute polyneuritis and bilateral retinitis. Immunodeficiency was not detected either during admission or during a 3-year follow-up period. The patient was treated with ganciclovir (5 mg/kg BID) during 4 weeks with a favourable clinical outcome. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case with such characteristics. © 1995 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
