Abstract
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia has been highly prevalent in prematurity, malnourished infants and immunosuppressed patients. Since 1981, it has been by far the commonest opportunistic infection in AIDS. We experienced a case of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia associated with cytomegalovirus lung infection in a 3 months old malnourished female orphan. She had been suffered from chronic diarrhea, losing body weight 2 kg in a month prior to admission. She also had chronic hacking cough over 20 days which was followed by sudden onset of tachypnea with hypoxemia, which continued getting worse into respiratory failure. 3 days later, she expired and autopsy was performed. Autopsy findings revealed Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia assoicated with cytomegalovirus lung infection without any evidence of cytomegalovirus infection in the other organ. A brief review of revealed literatures was added.
Key Words: Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, Cytomegalovirus.
