Case: Quick, the NEXT RELATED COMMON bug with HIV attacks the eyes, leading to loss of vision and retina detachment. What bug and drug? No hints here...except it starts again with the letter "C". Give morphology of bug...too.
A) This is CMV retinitis. YOU must give GANCICLOVIR! This is part of the HERPESVIRUS family. It is double stranded, linear, enveloped. (My mneumonic....think....CMV stands for California Motorcycle Vehicle GANG) [Think and imagine a CMV gang riding down the highway getting flies stuck in their eyes and slowly losing their eyesight!!!]
