Cytomegalic inclusion disease (CMD) is an infectious disease caused by CMV. The CMD can occur as acongenital or as an acquired infection after birth. The onset and severity of chinical manifestation are closely related with time of infection. In our study, 173 cases of CMD were analysed, 121 boys and 52 girls. The significant symptoms and signs were jaundice, hepatomegaly and abnormal liver function. But pulmonary complaints were frequently seen and 104 cases (60. 1%) were confirmed with pneumonia by roentgenogram of chest. Rickets, Vitamin A deficiency and septicemia were the frequent complications in our cases, while the septicemia 晈as the important cause for those died (5/8). So, We suggest that after admission of CMD. routine blood culture and chest roentgenogram should,be done to detect early complications of pneumonia or septicemia. Broad-spectrum antibiotics ought to be used in order to decrease the mortality.
