Severe gastroenteritis as presentation of a primary cytomegalovirus infection in an immunocompetent woman
In immunocompetent hosts, symptomatic cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection occurs in around 10% and has traditionally been considered to have a benign, self-limiting course. Active CMV infection in immunocompetent persons is very rare. However, manifestations of CMV infection in immunocompromised hosts have been extensively reported.
We present a case of a 58-year-old immunocompetent woman with a primary cytomegalovirus infection, which presented as a severe gastroenteritis and hepatitis.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
