  Purpose

The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the relevance of Valganciclovir on recurrent bouts of cryptogenic inflammatory bowel diseases with infection by cytomegalovirus (CMV). The goal is to obtain 90% (for Valganciclovir treated patients) versus 50% (for placebo treated patients) remission at 3 months (including the discontinuation of corticoids or reducing their dose to under 20 mg of prednisone equivalence), without any relapse over the 6 following months.
