Know more about CMV IGG (CYTOMEGALOVIRUS IGG), SERUM test

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) test helps to determine whether someone with signs and symptoms has an active CMV infection. Sometimes it is also ordered to determine whether someone had a prior CMV infection.

Signs and symptoms such as: 

Fatigue, weakness, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, fever, headache and muscle aches

Other less common but more serious signs include inflammation of the lungs, eyes, liver, spleen, and/or digestive tract. 

If a pregnant woman is detected with CMV, she can take simple hygienic precautions to reduce her exposure to the virus.

Toddlers are a "hot zone" for CMV. And by slightly modifying your habits while you were pregnant, you can reduce your risk of catching this silent virus. 

There are at present no vaccines to prevent CMV infection. For those who have close contact with children, especially pregnant women or women, simple measures like hand washing may help. Other measures include are not sharing eating utensils, avoidance of intimate contact with anyone who has a CMV infection etc. However, a mother with the infection is advised not to stop breast feeding as the benefits of breastfeeding are believed to outweigh the risks of passing CMV to the baby. Blood and organs before donation need to be screened for the virus to prevent spread.

The oral antiviral medication also may be used at home once the infection is under control and the patient is stable. Some of the drugs used include CMV-immune globulin (CMV-IVIG) and the antiviral drug Ganciclovir. 

Test Method 1: A blood sample will be collected from a vein of your arm.

Report Available: Turn around time is 24 hours. 

When the doctor suspects you of suffering from CMV symptoms, you will be asked to take this test.
