“…CMV has also been found in biopsy specimens from immunocompromised patients with erythematous and purpuric morbilliform eruptions [2], scattered verrucous lesions [19]and widespread eruption of perifollicular papulopustules [24]. A generalized urticaria during disseminated CMV infection and a vesiculobullous eruption with histological evidence of intraepidermal multinucleate giant cells, consistent with the cytopathic damage usually produced by herpes group viruses, have also been reported [18, 28].…”

“…Cutaneous manifestations of CMV infection, which are rare and nonspecific [2], have been reported mostly in patients with AIDS, malignant neoplasms, burns and immunosuppression after organ transplantation [1]. CMV infection shows a broad spectrum of clinical skin manifestations such as vesicles [3], ulcerations [4, 5], pyoderma, erythema nodosum [6], pruritic nodules [7], petechiae and purpura [8], verrucous plaques and nodules [9], and papular acrodermatitis [10]. Urticarial and morbilliform eruptions have also been reported in an immunocompromised host after heart transplantation [5] and a patient with diabetes mellitus [11].…”
