Can anybody answer the following question?

40yr old male who was seropositive for HIV experiencing abdominal pain, fatigue, and low grade fever (38C) for two weeks.  A chest X ray examination revealed lung infiltrates.  Gram and acid fast stains were negative.  A viral culture revealed the cause of his symptoms:  a large, enveloped polyhedral virus with double stranded DNA.  

Can you tell me what disease this is and what virus caused it?

 

Thanks
