Comment: Routine screening is indicated in immunosuppresed patients or in pregnancy as infection may result in fetal death or cytommegalic inclusion disease e.g. prematurty, hepatospleomegaly, anemia, pneumoniitis, CNS damage and retardation. Though most infants are asymptomatic, the virus may cause hepatitis, interstitial pneumonitis, acquired hemolytic anemia or infectious mononucleosis- like disease.

CMV is a significant cause of post– cardiotomy, post-transplant, and post pump hepatitis syndrome
