What is Cytomegalic Inclusion Disease (Cytology) test?

Cytomegalovirus is a member of the herpesvirus family and causes cytomegalic inclusion disease, a generalised infection in infants and small children caused by intrauterine, natal, or postnatal exposure to infected secretions (blood, cervical secretions, urine, saliva, breast milk, or semen). The mode of transmission to immunocompromised clients is unknown. Cytomegalic inclusion disease symptoms may range from none in healthy-appearing children to generalised symptoms of a severe infection; the disease is characterised by the presence of intranuclear or intracellular inclusion bodies in the kidney that are excreted in the urine. The disease may also affect the salivary glands, lung, liver, pancreas, and brain, where inclusion bodies may also be found. Severe symptoms may be fatal.
