Secondary polyserositis with primary cytomegalovirus infection in a patient with ulcerative colitis undergoing immunosuppressive treatment.

This paper presents the case study of a patient with ulcerative colitis (UC) undergoing immunosuppressive treatment with azathioprine who exhibited a severe primary cytomegalovirus infection. The patient presented with jaundice (mild acute hepatitis) and polyserositis which were treated with a specific antiviral treatment. The patient did not choose for the recommencement of immunosuppressive treatment after its initial discontinuation; therefore, maintenance treatment was administered with oral Mesalazine.
