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.
