Cytomegalovirus

Abstract

Only a small proportion of people throughout the world escape infection with cytomegalovirus (CMV). The age at acquisition, the presence and type of clinical manifestations, and the sites and extent of virus excretion vary, but serological surveys conducted on all continents confirm the ubiquitous distribution of human CMV.
