Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a selflimited disease among the immunocompetent population. But as organ transplantation becomes more widely practiced. CMV becomes a problem for immunocompromised patients. There is no permanent immunity after exposure to CMV infection. The prevalence of CMV infection varies form country to country and ranges from about 40% in France to nearly 100% in Japan and the Philippines.1 Regardless of whether CMV infection is due to reactivation of a latent infection or a de novo primary infection. these infections in immunocompromised patients are always more aggressive in character than they are in the general population. especially when certain organs are involved. such as with CMV pneumonitis and encephalitis. We studied the prevalence of CMV infection in donors and recipients of renal allograft transplants and the outcome of CMV infection after renal transplantation in Taiwan.#0695#
