Abstract

We performed a prospective study of discontinuation of secondary prophylaxis against cytomegalovirus (CMV) in 36 patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and quiescent CMV retinitis after successful treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). No reactivation or progression of retinitis was observed in 35 patients with persistent response to HAART, findings that support the discontinuation of secondary prophylaxis against CMV retinitis in such patients.
