Abstract

Opportunistic infections during primary infection with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 have occasionally been reported in the medical literature, and those caused by cytomegalovirus have tended to be severe and prolonged. We describe a 40-year-old man who had acute retroviral syndrome complicated by a severe cytomegalovirus-induced esophageal ulceration, which was successfully treated with total parenteral nutrition and ganciclovir in addition to highly active antiretroviral therapy.
