Pathology

In brief: Viral meningitis lke

The symptoms of this are probably like those of any viral meningitis, and consist of fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, malaise, anorexia, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
This could also have CSF lymphocytes, higher protein, and glucose. This usually just needs supportive care. If the brain itself is involved, there can be altered consciousness, seizures, and focal neurologic findings.

Brain involvement by CMV is usually in immunocompromised patients and is treated with gancyclovir, foscarnet, or a combination of the two drugs.
