What are some symptoms of acute cytomegalovirus?

Patients with weakened immune systems who experience symptoms of CMV infection should seek medical care, warns Mayo Clinic. For these patients, especially if they are recovering from bone marrow or organ transplants, the disease is potentially fatal. Additionally, pregnant women who develop symptoms should seek evaluation and learn about the risks to their unborn children. If it is the woman’s first CMV infection, there is a higher likelihood of transmission to her child. With a reactivated infection, there is less risk of passing it along during pregnancy.
