ABSTRACT
We performed a prospective study of discontinuation of sec-ondary prophylaxis against cytomegalovirus (CMV) in 36 patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and qui-escent CMV retinitis after successful treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). No reactivation or progression of retinitis was observed in 35 patients with per-sistent response to HAART, findings that support the dis-continuation of secondary prophylaxis against CMV retinitis in such patients.
