Zusammenfassung

Die Häufigkeit von Cytomegalie-Infektionen scheint in letzter Zeit bei akuten Leukämien zugenommen zu haben. Wir haben versucht, aus dem Urin von 11 Patienten mit Leukämien und anderen malignen Erkrankungen Cytomegalie-Viren zu züchten. Bei einem 6 1/2 jährigen Jungen mit Stammzellenleukämie gelang der Nachweis eines Cytomegalie-Virus. Die Cytomegalie kann nur als Begleitinfekt bei einer Leukämie aufgefaßt werden. Die immunosuppressive Therapie begünstigt sicherlich die Entstehung einer Cytomegalie-Infektion.

Summary

An increase in the incidence of the cytomegalovirus infections complicating leukemia was reported in the last years. Attempts were made to isolate cytomegalovirus from the urine of 11 patients with leukemias and other malignancies. Cytomegaloviruria was detected in a 6 and a half year old boy with acute leukemia. The decreased host resistance induced by an immunosuppressant therapy may be an explanation of the development of this disease. Cytomegalic inclusion disease is only a concomitant infection of a leukemia.
