    CMV or Cytomegalovirus is a viral infection that is pretty prevalent all over the world.. It shows no symptoms and usually causes only mild fever or illnesses which makes it hard to detect. However, both children and adults can get affected by the disease. This virus is related to other viruses that cause diseases like mononucleosis, herpes simplex and chicken pox. It usually spreads to other people through body fluids such as saliva, blood, and semen. the virus can also be passed by pregnant mothers to their babies through breast milk.

    People with a weakened immune system are more likely to be affected by the viral infection. In addition, you might be at risk if you have undergone an organ transplant, bone marrow or stem cell transplant procedure. If you are affected by this viral infection, you might suffer from symptoms similar to common flu. 

    • Fever 
    • Sore throat 
    • Extreme tiredness 
    • Swollen glands 
    • Runny nose 
    • Chills 
    • Body aches 
    • Headaches

    If babies are diagnosed with CMV, they may seem healthy at birth. For babies with congenital CMV, the infection symptoms might be different. They develop these symptoms over time, which might take months or even years.

    • Low birth weight 
    • Small head 
    • Premature birth 
    • Yellow eyes and skin 
    • Purple skin rashes 
    • Enlarged spleen 
    • Developmental and vision problems

    For patients with a weak immune system, CMV infection can lead to severe or potentially complications. That's why it is essential to visit a doctor as soon as you start experiencing infection symptoms.

    The most comprehensive examination for detecting CMV infection is the CMV IgG and IgM Test. This test helps doctors identify current or reactivated cytomegalovirus in your body. Further, they will examine the infection symptoms and assess their severity.

    The CMV IgG and IgM Test are primarily essential for newborns having congenital problems, pregnant mothers and organ transplant/ bone marrow transplant patients. It focuses on the analysis of two antibodies that are produced as part of the immune system response.

    The infection test consists of two sub-tests to examine the infection symptoms for CMV. These are Cytomegalovirus (CMV) IgG test and Cytomegalovirus (CMV) IgM test. The doctors will examine your blood sample as part of the CMV IgG and IgM Test procedure. Contact Apollo 24|7 for availing of the best services for the viral test.
