Cytomegalovirus associated colonic pseudotumor: A consequence of iatrogenic immunosuppression in a patient with primary brain tumor receiving radiation and temozolomide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report the case of a patient with primary brain tumor who developed cytomegalovirus associated colonic pseudotumor as an opportunistic infection while receiving chemotherapy with Temozolomide and radiation. This case highlights the potential for severe opportunistic infections in this patient population after severe immunosuppression.
