TEJEDOR-CERDENA, María Auxiliadora et al. Cytomegalovirus ileitis in an immunocompetent patient. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2011, vol.103, n.3, pp.154-156. ISSN 1130-0108.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus that belongs to the family of Herpesviridae. Infection can cause a serious disease in immunocompromised patients, but it can also affect immunocompetent patients, creating generally self limiting symptoms. However, in some cases it can be fatal. We present a case of CMV ileitis with serious clinical symptoms that led to an operation in an immunocompetent patient.

Keywords : Ileitis; Cytomegalovirus; Immunocompetent.
