Abstract

Although cytomegalovirus (CMV) can be fatal to patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), it usually causes few, if any, symptoms. The virus has an affinity for the alimentary tract, especially the ileum and right colon. CMV infections of the gut are often erosive, resulting in enterocolitis, hemorrhage, or intestinal perforation. Inflammatory mass formation is rare. Kaposi's sarcoma and lymphoma are established causes of bowel obstruction in patients with AIDS. This report describes a case of ileocecal obstruction due to a discrete CMV-induced pseudotumor in a patient with AIDS.
