  • TREATMENT OF AGGRESSIVE CYTOMEGALOVIRUS RETINITIS WITH GANCICLOVIR IN COMBINATION WITH FOSCARNET IN A CHILD INFECTED WITH HUMAN-IMMUNODEFICIENCY-VIRUS JOURNAL OF PEDIATRICS Butler, K. M., deSmet, M. D., Husson, R. N., Mueller, B., Manjunath, K., MONTRELLA, K., Lovato, G., Jarosinski, P., NUSSENBLATT, R. B., Pizzo, P. A. 1992; 120 (3): 483-486

    Abstract:

    Ganciclovir and foscarnet are both effective for cytomegalovirus retinitis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, but the benefits of either agent given alone are limited. A child infected with human immunodeficiency virus who had cytomegalovirus retinitis that progressed despite treatment with either agent alone received the combination of ganciclovir and foscarnet. This treatment resulted in a sustained clinical response.
