Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) cholangitis is a rare manifestation of CMV infection that has previously been described only in HIV-infected patients and solid-organ-transplant recipients. Reported here is a case of CMV cholangitis that occurred in a patient on chronic corticosteroid therapy who presented with recurrent hemobilia and biliary obstruction and was successfully treated with ganciclovir and cholecystostomy. A search of the medical literature revealed no previous case of this kind.
