Abstract

Cytomegalovirus infection of the brain is very rarely known to cause mass lesions. Cytomegalovirus neurological disease occurs most often in AIDS and immunocompromised patients. The clinical manifestations are usually encephalitis, myelitis, or polyradiculopathy. In this article, we describe a Cytomegalovirus cerebral mass lesion in an immunocompromised patient with systemic lupus erythematosus, treated with prednisone and mycophenolate.
