Abstract

RAMIREZ-QUINTERO, Juan David. Cytomegalovirus colitis in an immunocompetent patient. Iatreia [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.2, pp.202-206. ISSN 0121-0793.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17533/udea.iatreia.v31n2a09.

Severe cytomegalovirus infection in immunocompetent patients is unusual with colitis being its main manifestation. It occurs predominantly in elderly patients with high burden of comorbidities. A case of a woman with acute heart failure and coronary heart disease who had lower gastrointestinal bleeding due to cytomegalovirus colitis in the absence of apparent immunosuppression is presented.

Keywords : Cytomegalovirus Infections; Colitis; Immunocompetence; Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage; Myocardial Ischemia.
