Abstract

Abstract Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a frequent and serious complication of various conditions, including diseases characterized by impaired immunity, such as the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Due to recent advances in the treatment of cytomegalovirus retinitis, accurate diagnosis and management have become increasingly important. In this review, the authors present the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnostic testing, treatment with complications, and prognosis of cytomegalovirus retinitis. A differential diagnosis is presented and the characteristic ocular lesions are illustrated.
