Is there a definitive treatment for CMV infection?
Q: I have a patient suffering from repeated abortions. The serological tests reveal positive CMV infection. Is there any definitive treatment for this?
A:There is no definite treatment for CMV infection. However, it is unlikely that CMV is the cause of repeated abortions in your patient. You will have to test the patient for IgG and IgM CMV antibodies when she conceives again to check whether or not she has a repeat infection. Please note that effects of repeat infection are significantly less than primary infection during pregnancy. The chances of baby getting affected by repeat infection is less than 1 %.
