Cytomegaloviral infection presenting in an immunologically compromised host as a solitary pulmonary nodule has not previously been reported. A patient with a renal transplant and with no pulmonary symptoms was noted to have a single nodule on a chest roentgenogram. At autopsy, this proved to be secondary to cytomegaloviral infection. Differential diagnostic considerations in the immunosuppressed patient are discussed.
