Abstract

This is a report of a case of severe intraocular inflammation associated with cytomegalovirus in an untreated HIV+ patient with a marked CD4+ T-cell depletion. The atypical presentation shown could confuse and delay the diagnosis. Early suspicion and appropriate treatment (ganciclovir, valganciclovir, HAART) increase the likelihood of a favourable outcome.
