Cutaneous expressions in cytomegalovirus infection are rare and their clinical manifestations in immunosuppressed patients are diverse; for example, ulcerative forms. Therefore, cytomegalovirus infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of ulcers in immunosuppressed patients.
We reported an immunosuppressed child with severe oral ulcerative lesions of torpid evolution, associated with cytomegalovirus infection, diagnosed by laboratory and histopathological examinations.
