  2. 2. Cytomegalovirus Dr.T.V.Rao MD 2
  3. 3. Cytomegalovirus• Cytomegalovirus (from the Greek cyto-, "cell", and -megalo-, "large") is a herpes viral genus of the Herpesviruses group: in humans it is commonly known as HCMV or Human Herpesvirus 5 (HHV-5).[1] CMV belongs to the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily of Herpesviridae, Dr.T.V.Rao MD 3
  4. 4. Cytomegalovirus• HCMV infections are frequently associated with salivary glands, though they may be found throughout the body. HCMV infection can also be life threatening for patients who are immunocompromised (e.g. patients with HIV, organ transplant recipients, or neonates). Dr.T.V.Rao MD 4
  5. 5. Cytomegalovirus• HCMV is found throughout all geographic locations and socioeconomic groups, and infects between 50% and 80% of adults in the United States (40% worldwide as indicated by the presence of antibodies in much of the general population. Seroprevalence is age-dependent: 58.9% of individuals aged 6 and older are infected with CMV while 90.8% of individuals aged 80 and older are positive for HCMV. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 5
  6. 6. Properties of Virus.• Spherical in shape.• 150-200 nm in diameter.• Genome ds DNA.• Species specific.• Cell type specific. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 6
  7. 7. CMVDr.T.V.Rao MD 7
  8. 8. Replication of the virus.• Human Fibroblasts,• Can be isolated from Epithelial cells,• Slow growth on culturing,• CMV produce cytopathic effects• Infected cells are greatly enlarged. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 8
  9. 9. Transmission• Transmission of HCMV occurs from person to person through bodily fluids. Infection requires close, intimate contact with a person excreting the virus in their saliva, urine, or other bodily fluids. CMV can be sexually transmitted and can also be transmitted via breast milk, transplanted organs, and rarely from blood transfusions. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 9
  10. 10. Pathogenesis and Pathology.• Spreads because of close contact between human to human.• Isolated from Lungs, Liver, oesophagus, colon kidney, Monocytes, T and B lymphocytes, Salivary glands Cell mediate immunity is depressed.Incubation period 4 – 8 weeksManifest as Infectious mononucleosis syndrome Dr.T.V.Rao MD 10
  11. 11. Pathogenesis• Sub clinical infections are common• Latent infections are common• Virus are shed from Pharynx, and excreted in urine.• Produce severe infections in Immunosuppressed patients.• Pneumonia most important complication. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 11
  12. 12. Typical appearance of cells Infected with CMV Dr.T.V.Rao MD 12
  13. 13. Congenital and Perinatal Infections.• 1% are infected congenitally in USA.• Produce birth defects,• 1% maternal transmission,• Genital tract helps in spread during delivery.• Blood transfusion can spread to virus to recipient. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 13
  14. 14. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 14
  15. 15. Part of the To RCH panel• HCMV is one of the TORCH infections that lead to congenital abnormalities. These are: toxoplasmosis, rubella, herpes simplex, and cytomegalovirus. Congenital HCMV infection occurs when the mother suffers a primary infection (or reactivation) during pregnancy. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 15
  16. 16. Clinical Findings,• Asymptomatic in majority,• Infectious Mononucleosis.• Fever, Myalgia and Liver dysfunction,• In Immune compromised, Increased Morbidity, and Mortality, Pneumonia, Bone marrow transplantation,Disseminate Disease in AIDS.Gastro Enteritis and Chorioretinitis,lead to Blindness Dr.T.V.Rao MD 16

  25. 25. Laboratory Tests• The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (or ELISA) is the most commonly available serologic test for measuring antibody to CMV. The result can be used to determine if acute infection, prior infection, or passively acquired maternal antibody in an infant is present. Other tests include various fluorescence assays, indirect haemagglutination, (PCR) and latex agglutination. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 25
  26. 26. CMV infected cell In Urine.Observe the Cytomegaly Dr.T.V.Rao MD 26
  27. 27. Treatment and Control.• Ganciclovir, in Retinitis, esophagitis, colitis,Other Drugs, Acyclovir, ValaciclovirScreening of Blood, and organ donors,Passive Immunization with CMV hyper immune globulin, Dr.T.V.Rao MD 27
  28. 28. Ganciclovir• Ganciclovir treatment is used for patients with depressed immunity who have either sight-related or life-threatening illnesses. Valganciclovir (Valcyte®) is an antiviral drug that is also effective and is given orally. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 28
  29. 29. Passive immunization• Cytomegalovirus Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) (CMV-IGIV) is an immunoglobulin G (IgG) containing a standardized amount of antibody to Cytomegalovirus (CMV). It may be used for the prophylaxis of cytomegalovirus disease associated with transplantation of kidney, lung, liver, pancreas, and heart.• Alone or in combination with an antiviral agent, it has been shown to: Dr.T.V.Rao MD 29
  30. 30. Alone or in combination with an antiviral agent,• Reduce the risk of CMV-related disease and death in some of the highest-risk transplant patients• Provide a measurable long-term survival benefit• Produce minimal treatment-related side effects and adverse events Dr.T.V.Rao MD 30

Dr.T.V.Rao MD 62
  63. 63. Other optimal options in Diagnosis• Diagnosis of IM is best accomplished by examining the IgM and IgG antibody reactivity pattern to a number of EBV proteins.
