ABSTRACT

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis usually affects immunocompromised hosts. We report a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus who presented with massive lower gastrointestinal bleed due to CMV colitis, which proved to be fatal. Awareness about this life-threatening entity is important in patients who have impaired immune response.
