Abstract
I report a case of extremely low birth weight infant, who presented central diabetes insipidus associated with cytomegalovirus infection. His brain magnetic resonance imaging showed a flattened pituitary gland, and demonstrated a lack of posterior pituitary hyperintensity. It successfully managed with oral desmopressin (Minirin(R)) and persisted beyond the resolving of symptomatic cytomegalovirus infection.
Key Words: Central diabetes insipidus, Extremely low birth weight infant, Cytomegalovirus infection
