Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Massive upper gastrointestinal (GI) hemorrhage is a rare manifestation of GI cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. A review of the English language literature yielded 21 well-documented cases of gastric ulcers due to CMV, and 7 of these 21 cases were complicated by significant GI bleeding. This report describes two cases of massive upper GI hemorrhage due to CMV infection in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
