A case of acute anicteric hepatitis with positivity for IgM anti-cytomegalovirus (CMV) and anti-Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is reported. Stress is laid on the peculiarity of this clinical picture. The authors hypothesize a real co-infection of CMV and EBV or that EBV’s infection may cause a false positivity of IgM-anti CMV or that CMV’s infection may cause an EBV reactivation.
