Diabetes insipidus associated with symptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus infection.

Academic Article


  • We report five infants with congenital cytomegalovirus infection in whom diabetes insipidus developed before initiation of treatment with ganciclovir. Four of five infants required treatment with desmopressin. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed no destruction of the hypothalamus or pituitary gland in any infant. Cortisol levels and results of thyroid function studies were normal in all infants.
