Abstract

CMV infection in children with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection appears to be less common than in adults. As an opportunistic pathogen in pediatric AIDS, CMV infection is generally associated with pneumonitis or hepatitis. In this report we describe an infant with congenital HIV infection whose presenting illness was CMV enterocolitis.
