Received12 Jul 1994

Abstract

A six-year-old boy with Ménétriér's disease, which developed in association with an intercurrent cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, is presented. This case illustrates the clinical features, natural history and self-limited nature of this rare cause of exudative protein loss in childhood and provides evidence for the association between CMV infection and the pathogenesis of this disorder.
