What is HIV and AIDS?
Infection with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) occurs from unprotected sexual contact or injection of blood or blood products (transfusion, sharing of needles). HIV infection is a chronic, slowly progressive, and usually fatal disease. The Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is the final, pre-terminal phase of the HIV illness, often occurring years after the initial infection.. Current estimates of HIV infection are staggering. Worldwide numbers include 33,400,000 persons living with HIV and 13,900,000 deaths. Nearly 16,000 people become HIV-positive every day. Tragically, over 10,000,000 children have become orphaned due to HIV infection. What are the eye problems found in AIDS? There are a myriad of eye infections and tumors found with HIV and AIDS, including Kaposi's sarcoma, molluscum contagiosum, herpes zoster, HIV retinopathy, syphilis, cryptococcus, and toxoplasmosis. By far and away, the most common vision-threatening infection is an infection of the retina called cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis.

What is Cytomegalovirus?
Cytomegalovirus, also called CMV is a common virus that infects most people at but rarely causes obvious illness. CMV is also the virus most frequently transmitted to a developing child before birth. A person can carry CMV in their body for a lifetime. It can be dormant in the body and then reactivate at a later time. Cytomegalovirus is a member of the herpes virus family. Some other viruses in the herpes family cause: chickenpox , infectious mononucleosis , fever blisters (herpes I) and genital herpes (herpes II). For the vast majority of people, CMV infection is not a serious problem. CMV infects between 50% and 85% of adults in the United States by 40 years of age. Symptoms? Most people never develop symptoms after exposure. The incubation period appears to be between three and 12 weeks. When symptoms appear, the most common symptoms are: prolonged fever , swollen glands, tiredness, and a mild hepatitis.

The Big Picture Book of Viruses: Herpesviridae
ICTVdB Description: Taxonomy: Host:
    Virus infects vertebrates.
    Virions contain one molecule of linear double stranded DNA. Total genome length is 120000-220000 nt. Guanine + cytosine ratio 35-75 %.
    Virions enveloped; slightly pleomorphic; spherical; 120-200 nm in diameter. Surface projections of envelope distinct; spikes; dispersed evenly over all the surface. Nucleocapsids isometric. Nucleocapsid surrounded by the tegument that consists of globular material which is frequently asymmetrically distributed and may be variable in amount. Nucleocapsids sometimes penetrated by stain (although intact envelope impermeable to stain); 100-110 nm in diameter. Symmetry icosahedral. Nucleocapsids appear to be angular. Surface capsomer arrangement obvious. 162 capsomers per nucleocapsid (capsomeres hexagonal in cross-section with a hole running half-way down the long axis). Core consists of a fibrillar spool on which the DNA is wrapped. The ends of the fibers are anchored to the underside of the capsid shell. Incomplete virus particles often present; they are capsids lacking the envelope.
(Note: for more information about the taxonomy and structure of this virus family, see the ICTV database below.)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
What Is It?
Cytomegalovirus, or CMV, is a virus. It is a herpes virus, a family of viruses that also includes the varicella virus (responsible for chicken pox) and herpes simplex I (responsible for cold sores). Being infected with CMV is no reason to panic. CMV is only a threat when the immune system becomes damaged. If your T-cell count falls below 50, you're at a much greater risk of developing CMV disease, particularly CMV retinitis ( discussed below ). Anti-HIV therapies can help protect and repair the immune system. Additionally, preventative therapy (prophylaxis) is available to HIV-infected patients who are at risk of developing CMV disease.
What is CMV disease? In HIV-infected people, CMV can cause disease in one or several parts of the body. These include: The Types of CMV Disease CMV Retinitis: CMV can cause damage to the back of the eye, or the retina. This can lead to blurred vision, blind spots or moving spots, and blindness. This is the most common type of CMV disease in people with HIV. While usually not life-threatening, problems seeing and blindness is usually permanent, even if treatment has been successful.

This is a classic example of the nuclear inclusion body seen with CMV infection and it is this histological presentation that is the basis for the naming of this virus. Note, close to the center of the field, the large dark pink nuclear inclusion body surrounded by a clear halo. CMV also causes the development of cytoplasmic inclusions, seen as granules throughout the cytoplasm of the infected cells. Other viruses also cause the formation of inclusions, e.g. herpes, variola, rabies, hepatitis B, etc. It is important to be able to recognize these inclusions in histology specimens Click for image To Next Image To Table of Contents To Alphabetical Index To Start

52. Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
cytomegalovirus (CMV). cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a member of the herpes family of viruses. CMV affects more than half of all adults
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a member of the herpes family of viruses. CMV affects more than half of all adults but rarely causes significant disease unless there is damage to the body’s immune system. CMV usually infects healthy adults through close personal or sexual contact. After CMV infects a healthy person, the immune system prevents the virus spreading and causing disease but the virus is never eliminated form the body. How does it affect someone who is HIV positive? After HIV infection has damaged the immune system, the body may no longer be able to suppress CMV and the virus may go on to cause disease. CMV disease is rare in individuals with a CD4 count above 50. When it is below 50 however, CMV may cause retinitis in the eye, oesophagitis or colitis in the gut, and occasionally problems with the nervous system, liver or lungs. What are the signs and symptoms of CMV disease? The symptoms of CMV disease depend on the part of the body affected by the disease. Also, similar symptoms can be caused by other conditions. Early CMV retinitis often occurs without any symptoms, but if they are present people may experience:

Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
Our CMV Story
(not spina bifida related) My husband Patrick became very ill in the spring 1996. At first his doctor had no idea why he was so tired, why he had muscle aches and a fever. He felt terrible and the symptoms lasted for about 8 weeks. The first thought was mononucleosis, but weeks later after blood tests showed an enlarged liver, he was tested for CMV. Pat, tested positive. We were told to have Andrew and myself tested. This got me intrigued, I wondered "how did Andrew get this, if not from me" and "Why didn't Andrew get sick like Pat got sick?" This got me looking for information which le ad me to a blood bank site on the net. There I read that a newborn baby could get it from their mothers but that CMV could also be transmitted by a blood transfusion. Then the story started to unfold; because at 6 weeks old Andrew had a blood transfusion during his (2nd surgery) for decompression. He had to have gotten the CMV then. I looked into Andrew's medical files and I found out that at about 10 weeks old

54. Information About Cytomegalovirus.
Human cytomegalovirus is a member of the herpesvirus family. Once infected with cytomegalovirus, individuals are permanently infected with the virus.
Human cytomegalovirus is a member of the herpesvirus family. Cytomegalovirus is a very common infection with 80% of the adult population having evidence of infection. Once infected with cytomegalovirus, individuals are permanently infected with the virus. Fortunately, most infections do not result in disease although there are exceptions. Infrequently, cytomegalovirus can cause infectious mononucleosis in otherwise normal healthy adults. Much more commonly, cytomegalovirus is associated with disease in newborn infants or people that are immunocompromised including transplant recipients and people with AIDS.
Infection of newborn infants usually results from transmission of the virus to the fetus while in utero. Infection of newborn infants is associated with a range of presentations from asymptomatic infection to deafness to mental retardation to death. Infection of people undergoing bone marrow transplantation is associated with pneumonitis while cytomegalovirus infection in people with AIDS is associated with retinitis, gastroenteritis and encephalitis. For additional information about the virus please see links.

56. Cytomegalovirus Encephalitis And Radiculomyelitis- Neurologic AIDS Research Cons
cytomegalovirus encephalitis and radiculomyelitis. cytomegalovirus is a frequent secondary viral infection in AIDS patients, causing retinitis in up to 40%.
Neurologic AIDS Research Consortium Cytomegalovirus encephalitis and radiculomyelitis Cytomegalovirus is a frequent secondary viral infection in AIDS patients, causing retinitis in up to 40%. Autopsy studies indicate that as many as 20-30% of AIDS patients have CMV encephalitis pathologically, while probably almost 10% develop a clinical neurologic deterioration that is probably the result of CMV. There are two general neurologic syndromes which may occur separately, or in conjunction with each other. The first is the result of CMV attacking the spinal roots and cord resulting in a rapid loss of function of bladder, saddle anesthesia and legs weakness with variable degree of pain and paralysis. The CSF typically has an inflammatory pattern, and sometimes CMV can be cultured from the CSF. Evaluation of the CSF for CMV DNA reveals abundant viral DNA. Early and aggressive therapy for CMV can arrest this disorder, and variable gradual improvement may follow. The other presentation may mimic a more aggressive form of AIDS dementia complex, with symptoms of dementia developing over just a few weeks time, sometimes associated with cranial nerve abnormalities affecting vision, hearing and balance that would be unusual for HIV alone. The spinal fluid is often bland in this disorder, but CSF PCR for CMV DNA is positive, and strongly supports the diagnosis when such a clinical pattern is seen. This disorder is generally rapidly fatal over a period of just 4-8 weeks, but recent evidence suggests that very aggressive use of currently available CMV therapy may stabilize or reverse this disorder. Early diagnosis is facilitated through knowledge of the syndrome and widespread availability of CSF PCR testing capability.
