Cytomegaloviral infection presenting as a solitary pulmonary nodule.


Journal Article

Cytomegaloviral infection presenting in an immunologically compromised host as a solitary pulmonary nodule has not previously been reported.

Differential diagnostic considerations in the immunosuppressed patient are discussed.
