Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is one of important opportunistic infections and cause significant morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. The colon, stomach, and esophagus are the organs frequently involved with CMV infection. CMV enteritis makes up less than 10% of the CMV gastroenteritis cases, usually presents with diarrhea, bleeding and perforation. Several reports have described patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in whom CMV enterocolitis were complicated by ileal perforation, but have been rarely reported in Korea. We report a case of multiple ileal perforation associated with CMV enteritis in 67 years old man who was diagnosed as AIDS later. He complained of hematochezia and abdominal pain. During emergency operation, multiple perforated lesions were seen at the distal ileum above ileocecal valve. Colonoscopic examination revealed multiple shallow aphthoid ulcers at descending colon. CMV enteritis and colitis were diagnosed by microscopic findings of both surgical and endoscopic specimens. He was recovered by antiviral therapy with ganciclovir.
