Transfusion-acquired cytomegalovirus infection in children in a hyperendemic area.
Thirty-nine children without previous cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection received blood transfusion in the National Taiwan University Hospital.
The overall transfusion-acquired CMV infection rate was 36% (14/39).
Donor CMV seropositive rate was 70%. None of the nine children who had received seronegative blood became infected, in contrast to 14 of the 21 children (67%) who had received seropositive blood (P=0.002).
