Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Cytomegalovirus:

NINDS Cytomegalic Inclusion Body Disease (CIBD) Information Page: NINDS (Excerpt)

Many children and adults who acquire the infection show no symptoms of the disease. But some, especially those who are immune compromised, may show serious symptoms, including fever, hepatitis, pneumonitis, retinitis, and/or a mononucleosis-like illness. In immune-compromised individuals, particularly those with AIDS, CMV infection can cause encephalitis. CMV is also a concern in organ-transplant populations-for example, those who receive kidney, heart, or lung transplants. Fetuses and newborn babies may acquire CMV before or during birth from a mother with an active infection. In these cases, the virus can be lethal to the fetus or newborn baby or cause serious systemic problems, including pneumonitis, bleeding, anemia, liver damage, or brain damage.

Other Important STDS, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)

In healthy adults, CMV usually produces no symptoms of infection. Occasionally, however, mild symptoms of swollen lymph glands, fever, and fatigue may occur. These symptoms may be similar to those of infectious mononucleosis. (Source: excerpt from Other Important STDS, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infection: DVRD (Excerpt)

For most healthy persons who acquire CMV after birth there are few symptoms and no long-term health consequences. Some persons with symptoms experience a mononucleosis-like syndrome with prolonged fever, and a mild hepatitis. Once a person becomes infected, the virus remains alive, but usually dormant within that person's body for life. Recurrent disease rarely occurs unless the person's immune system is suppressed due to therapeutic drugs or disease. Therefore, for the vast majority of people, CMV infection is not a serious problem. (Source: excerpt from Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infection: DVRD)
