Answer

Various infections have been reported to be associated with PVOD. These include infections with viruses such as cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and measles virus. [15] One case has been reported with concomitant Toxoplasma infection. A few cases of PVOD in the setting of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have been reported. [16]
