Cytomegalovirus Infections

more about Cytomegalovirus Infections

  • The Cytomegalovirus (commonly known as CMV) causes infections without symptoms in most healthy individuals. After infection, the CMV virus lays dormant, causing serious infections if the immune system is compromised (for example if a person develops cancer or HIV). CMV is a DNA virus from the Herpes family.
  • CMV infection during pregnancy can lead to stillbirth and serious damage to the infant.
  • In AIDS patients, it can lead to retinitis (eye damage), pneumonitis, and gastrointestinal problems. CMV infections can be treated in some with antiviral medications (e.g., Ganciclovir or Famciclovir) and CMV immune globulins.
