Abstract

Few cases of co-infection with cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Clostridium difficile colitis have been reported previously. We describe 2 cases of CMV and C. difficile colitis, and review 7 previously published reports. We aim to raise awareness of possible CMV-C. difficile co-infection, especially in refractory cases of C. difficile colitis.
