CMV: A Critical Concern for Transplant Recipients

CMV: A Critical Concern for Transplant Recipients

CMV poses a significant threat to organ transplant recipients, potentially leading to severe complications such as organ rejection and opportunistic infections. Despite advancements in antiviral therapies, CMV remains a prominent cause of morbidity and mortality in this vulnerable population. This month, and every month, we emphasize the importance of vigilance, early detection, and tailored treatment in managing CMV in transplant recipients.
