Although cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is common, the majority of infections cause little or no symptoms. Serious disease occurs virtually exclusively in fetuses or neonates and immunosuppressed individuals including those on corticosteroids, transplant recipients, and those with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Retinitis, gastrointestinal disease, and interstitial pneumonitis are among the more common manifestations of CMV disease, but infections at other sites also occur.
