Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is generally asymptomatic in immunocompetent patients. The most common clinical syndrome associated with CMV is mononucleosis syndrome characterized by fever, fatigue, sore throat, generalized lymphadenopathy, impaired liver function, and lymphocytosis. ÃÂ°n this case a 51 year-old female patient was considered as having tumor lysis syndrome due to presentation with weight loss, fever and night sweats and high levels of creatinine and uric acid. In this case lymphoproliferative diseases were the first to be investigated, however corresponding test results were negative and the serological tests showed an active CMV infection.
