Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is common in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. Hemorrhagic cystitis and tubulointerstitial nephritis have been recognized as complications of CMV infection, and these complications lead to hematuria and compromised renal function. We describe a case of CMV infection of the ureters in a child with vertically acquired human immunodeficiency virus infection; the child presented with severe suprapubic pain, and prolonged macroscopic hematuria and intermittent acute renal failure developed subsequently.
