• immune
  • The major known immune deficiencies recognized in patients who go on to manifest these more severe forms of EBV infection include transplant recipients, patients with HIV infection (although with modern combination antiretroviral therapy these are now fortunately quite rare), and patients with known genetic disorders (e.g. (psychiatryadvisor.com)

  • Infection with CMV is a major cause of disease and death in immunocompromised patients, including organ transplant recipients, patients undergoing hemodialysis, patients with cancer, patients receiving immunosuppressive drugs, and HIV-infected patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Exposing immunosuppressed patients to outside sources of CMV should be minimized to avoid the risk of serious infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Susceptible patients without CMV infection can be infected by receiving infected organs and blood products unless care is taken. (wikipedia.org)
  • recipients
  • HCMV infection is typically unnoticed in healthy people, but can be life-threatening for the immunocompromised, such as HIV-infected persons, organ transplant recipients, or newborn infants. (wikipedia.org)

  • In some cases the infection can cause abortion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite these apparently low numbers of infections, the true rate of infection may be higher, since most cases only cause a very mild disease, and will probably never be reported or diagnosed. (wikipedia.org)
  • botulism
