In brief: Immune modulation

Not sure if you are asking what infections may be associated w/or co-issues w/cmv.
CMV is a (hv) herpes virus (there's 16 of wh/14 infect humans i.E: hsv, vzv, mono (ebv), hhv6, hhv8). Once infect'd virus stay latent w/in. CMV is an immune modulator turning off response to itself and less so to other herpes viruses. Reactiv'n of one means immune system not holding that virus ; others in check.
