Abstract

To date, only seroepidemiological data are available on the role of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in patients with severe burns. We present the first longitudinal analysis of disseminated HCMV infection with a demonstration of self-limited productive viral replication identified in both the blood and lung of a burn patient.
