Abstract

Cytomegalovirus infection is a common pathogen which rarely cause symptomatic disease in an immunocompetent patient. We present an immocompetent 55 year old male with complaints of pain abdomen and loss of appetite. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and radiologic features were suggestive of malignancy and partial gastrectomy was performed. Histopathologic findings were diagnostic of cytomegalovirus infection. Incidentally, submucosa of the stomach showed Dieulafoy lesion. This case suggests that gastric ulcer with cytomegalovirus gastritis can mimic malignancy radiologically and on endoscopic evaluation.
