Dec 2nd, 2014 - Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis is a common manifestation of CMV end-organ disease, which has typically been described in immunocompromised hosts. Recently, it has been noted that this also occurs in immunocompetent patients. To gather relevant data about clinical presentation, prognosis, and risk factors for development of CMV colitis in immunocompetent hosts, we analyzed all cases that occurred...

Feb 18th, 2010 - Gastrointestinal infection with cytomegalovirus (CMV) is uncommon in immunocompetent hosts. The case of a 70-year-old male with CMV colitis, who has no history of chronic inflammatory bowel disease or immunodeficiency is described. Diagnosis was aided by the identification of inclusion bodies that reacted positively for CMV by immunohistochemical testing in biopsy specimens from the colonic muc...

Feb 21st, 2014 - Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection occurs increasingly in critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs). We reported CMV colitis which has rarely been recognized in the ICU patients. CMV DNA was detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for blood and/or stool samples. Definite diagnosis of CMV colitis required histopathology or CMV immunohistochemical staining of colorectal biopsies. We...

Jul 27th, 2016 - BACKGROUND Infection with gastrointestinal cytomegalovirus in an immunocompetent host is a rather rare occurrence in the literature. There are a few reports of gastrointestinal infection in the immunocompetent who are then subsequently given a new diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease. It is speculated that the initial cytomegalovirus colitis infection triggers the onset of inflammatory bowel...

Jul 29th, 2016 - Cytomegalovirus latency, though ubiquitous in the human population, is known to cause colitis in both immunocompromised and immunocompetent hosts. Furthermore, the clinical, endoscopic, and histologic appearance of cytomegalovirus colitis can mimic that of inflammatory bowel disease, an extremely well-documented disease. In this context, though many reports have looked at inflammatory bowel dis...

Mar 31st, 2019 - Survival outcomes for patients with glioblastoma (GBM) are universally poor with only a small percentage of patients surviving five years beyond initial diagnosis. Activation of the immune system against tumor cells is the basis of immunotherapy and aims to facilitate long-term immune surveillance and tumor suppression. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) has emerged as an immunologic target in GBM given tha...

May 11th, 2016 - Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis is uncommon in immunocompetent patients, despite a high seroprevalence rate of CMV in the general population. CMV infection has been described in individuals with compromised immune systems: in AIDS, under corticosteroid and immune modulating treatment, with cancer or haematological malignancies. Its most frequent clinical presentation is a necrotising ulcerative f...

Dec 22nd, 2016 - We report a case of HIV-associated Cytomegalovirus colitis complicated by large bowel perforation. A 62-year-old man of same-sex relationship was not known to have HIV, but a diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease was made early in his admission, with steroid treatment initiated. He was later confirmed to be HIV positive, and found to have multiple microperforations of the bowel necessitating ...

Jun 7th, 2011 - Cases of cytomegalovirus colitis are exceptionally reported in immuno-competent infant. The pathogenesis is uncertain but breast-feeding is considered as a main source of postnatal infection. Here we report a full-term, formula-fed infant who developed a severe cytomegalovirus anaemia and colitis when aged 2 months. Even if the molecular identity between the cytomegalovirus-isolate of the infan...

Jul 23rd, 2008 - A case of primary NK/T-cell lymphoma of the rectum accompanied with ulcerative colitis (UC) in a 73-year-old man is reported. He had a 6-year history of repeated admission to our hospital for UC. Total colonoscopy performed 4 months after resolution of refractory UC complicated by cytomegalovirus colitis showed a markedly submucosal tumor in the rectum, which was histologically diagnosed as mal...

Apr 3rd, 2015 - We report a rare case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis followed by severe ischemic colitis in a non-immunocompromised patient. An 86-year-old woman was admitted after experiencing episodes of vomiting and diarrhea. The next day, hematochezia was detected without abdominal pain. The initial diagnosis of ischemic colitis was based on colonoscopy and histological findings. The follow-up colonoscop...

Jul 25th, 2011 - We herein report a case of a 67-year-old diabetic woman who presented with a history of fatigue for 1 month. Her investigations showed proteinuria, active urine sediment, p-ANCA positivity and worsened renal functions. A diagnosis of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis was made. Renal biopsy revealed class V (membranous) lupus nephritis with superimposed ANCA-associated crescentic glomerulon...

Oct 15th, 2008 - Opportunistic gastrointestinal infections are common in patients with HIV infection; both amebic colitis and cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis are common causes of chronic diarrhea. It is difficult to distinguish these 2 diseases by nonspecific clinical symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss. Here we report a case of CMV colitis mimicking amebic colitis with elevated indirect he...

Aug 29th, 2008 - The occurrence of cytomegalovirus colitis is well known in immunosuppressed patients, such as neoplastic patients following chemotherapy, although its exact etiology remains unclear. We present a case of cytomegalovirus colitis occurring in a 77-year-old man with vomiting and diarrhea 2 weeks after initial systemic chemotherapy consisting of 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin and irinotecan for a recur...

Feb 1st, 2016 - Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis can contribute to an unfavorable outcome of acute severe ulcerative colitis (ASUC). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of ASUC according to the CMV status and identify risk factors for CMV colitis in patients with ASUC. We retrospectively analyzed patients with ASUC from 2011 to 2014 according to the criteria of Truelove and Witts. CMV ...

Apr 26th, 2013 - Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is frequently detected in ulcerative colitis (UC) lesions of steroid-refractory patients. This has led to the suspicion that CMV might cause colitis and steroid refractoriness. During 2003 and 2011, 187 consecutive patients were divided into group I (n = 105), corticosteroid-free and thiopurine-free in the past 6 months, and group II (n = 82), all corticosteroid refractory...
