Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV)-associated colonic vasculitis is a rare but serious complication of AIDS that usually presents with nonspecific abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss. We report a case of CMV-associated colonic vasculitis in a patient who presented with abdominal pain and a mass. Although pseudotumors of the GI tract have been reported as a complication of CMV infection, this is the first case of CMV-associated vasculitis as the underlying pathology.
