    Abstract

    Recent reports of cytomegalovirus associated colonic and oesophageal ulceration in immunosuppressed patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, have focused attention on the possibility that viral infections may in some cases be the initial insult which leads in susceptible subjects to gastrointestinal ulceration. In this case report we describe how systemic primary infection with the cytomegalovirus was associated with the development of multiple gastric and duodenal erosions.
