Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) may no longer be the menace that plagues stem cell transplant outcomes, owing to marked improvements in transplantation techniques and methods of prophylaxis. However, it still remains a common and morbid problem for recipients of stem cell transplant and patients with certain hematologic malignancies. This article discusses the epidemiology and risk factors of CMV infection and disease, associated morbidity and mortality, diagnosis, and clinical features of clinical syndromes associated with CMV and the principles of management of CMV, with special attention to resistant CMV as it pertains to infectious disease specialists.
