Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is usually considered as an important pathogen in advanced HIV infection especially with CD4 count <50 cells/microliter and it also appears to be most common organism complicating organ transplantation. Severe infection is uncommon in immunocompetent individuals. We reported such a case in our institution which run a course of acute viral hepatitis and acute meningoencephalitis with positive serology for CMV IgM and CMV DNA without any evidence of overt immunosupression. He was treated successfully with anti viral therapy.
