Q.

CMV Infection

What is the rate of CMV infection amongst infants in SA? Or could you recommend a good review/reference paper? I can' t seem to find any!

Thank-you!

The infection rate is thought to be about 1% usually but there are no firm statistics fo SA as far as I am aware.Look up www.kidshealth.org/parent/infections/cytomegalovirus
