Cytomegalovirus

Cytomegalovirus contamination is possible to observe everywhere. However, we can rarely see clinical manifestations. The disease-producing agent is pathogenic to man alone. So, its cultivation in vitro is only possible in human cell cultures, as no experimental animal is susceptible to the infection.

Clinics generally record cytomegalovirus infections with infants under two and older adults. However, we can find records of local and generalized lesions far more often. Patients are having neoplastic processes, AIDS, after organ transplantation or with patients who take steroids.

Infection cytomegalovirus

The infectious agent may transmit through the placenta, by contact, while the fetus is advancing through the generative passage, through breastfeeding, blood transfusion or intercourse. Some experts also believe that there can be an airborne transmission of cytomegalovirus or through urine. Perinatal contamination can observe with one per cent neonates, often with subclinical manifestations.

In some cases, though not very often, the disease runs a grave course and has a lethal outcome. Besides, the standard of the acute form cytomegalovirus is lesions of many internal organs, including encephalon, kidneys, liver and hemopoietic organs. The typical lesion in the subacute form is atypical interstitial pneumonia.

In some cases, colonic hydrotherapy can make a patient feel better. And, the beneficial planting bacteria in the large intestine significantly improves the functioning of the immune system.
