Abstract

A heterosexual woman with cytomegalovirus (CMV) proctitis after anal intercourse is presented. Whereas CMV infection typically occurs in immunosuppressed patients, including patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), this patient has no evidence of immunodeficiency, and is human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) negative during 8 months of follow-up since onset of proctitis. A review of the literature reveals no other report of sexually transmitted CMV proctitis in an immunocompetent woman after anal intercourse.
