Abstract

A 3-month-old male infant was admitted to hospital with anemia. Follow-up controls revealed the presence of specific cytomegalovirus (CMV) antibodies. Virus was isolated from urine, blood, and saliva. At 7 months of age, he presented with melena. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of biopsy samples from the duodenum was positive for CMV. Anemia resolved after starting antiviral therapy with oral valganciclovir.
