Abstract

A 17-year-old German adolescent with a four year history of neutropenia and repeated infections presented with severe dysphagia and progressive right-sided peroneus palsy. In the past four years, extensive medical workup had been performed, and despite conspicuous findings, no diagnosis was made. Finally we diagnosed HIV related CMV esophagitis and HIV associated polyneuropathy. The CMV oesphagitis was treated antivirally, and highly active antiretroviral HIV therapy was initiated. The mode of HIV transmission remained obscure until further research revealed a probable nosocomial infection during early childhood in Romania.
