Primary cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in immunocompetent patients is generally represented by a mononucleosis syndrome with negative heterophilic antibodies, that rises prevalently in sexually active young adults. It is characterized by aspecific symptoms which can join skin morbilliform rash. Less frequently, it can develop interstitial or segmental peumonia, myocarditis, pleurisy, encephalitis and Guillain-Barrè syndrome. The case of a young man who, after primary CMV infection, presented with signs of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism is reported.
