Cytomegalovirus CMV

Cytomegalovirus CMV - IgG IgM / PCR is a common virus. Infection by the virus rarely causes symptoms and is statistically very common in the general population.

The cases of cytomegalovirus CMV - IgG IgM / PCR can cause health problems are:

  • Young adults, infection with severe flu-like symptoms
  • Newborns, serious conditions shortly after birth, from infection with the virus that has attacked the woman during pregnancy and has passed through the placenta to the fetus (developmental problems, hearing, vision, delayed mental development, pneumonia, enlarged liver, spleen, small head)
  • Immunocompromised persons (with HIV infection / with immunosuppressive therapy in transplantation / with chemotherapy).

CMV IgM/IgG tests are used:

  • In prenatal screening, CMV IgM/IgG antibodies are performed to see if there will be immunity to the virus (from antibodies from a previous infection ( CMV IgM negative / CMV IgG positive)
  • During pregnancy if immunity to the virus is not found in prenatal screening, CMV IgM/IgG antibodies are tested for possible infection during pregnancy

IgM/IgG tests for CMV are performed in young or immunocompromised individuals with flu-infectious mononucleosis symptoms, such as:

  1. Fatigue, weakness
  2. Fever, sore throat, headache, muscle aches
  3. Swollen lymph nodes
  4. Inflammation in lungs eyes, liver, spleen, gastrointestinal tract

PCR can be requested

  1. in equivocal IgM/IgG results in pregnant women
  2. in newborns who do not have the ability to produce antibodies due to an immature immune system

For adults, the following are applied:

  1. Immunized from past infection : CMV IgM negative / CMV IgG positive
  2. Unimmunized / not exposed to CMV: CMV IgM negative / CMV IgG negative
  3. Current recent CMV infection: CMV IgM positive / CMV IgG negative or positive
