Cytomegalovirus enteritis is most usually associated with patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus or immunosuppressed transplant patients. The gastrointestinal tract may be affected anywhere from the esophagus to the colon, but the small bowel involvement is rare. We report a case of cytomegalovirus ileitis in an immunocompetent adult, which was confirmed by histopathologic findings through colonoscopic biopsy.
