1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

50%-80% of adult in the USA has been exposed to CMV, most people know they were exposed to CMV when a blood test shows that they have antibody against the virus, the virus remained dormant and cause no problems unless the person become immunosupressed ( HIV, transplant patients, chemotherapy patient etc.
..) then diseases such retinitis, esophagitis etc... can develop.

In brief: Unlikely

More than half the children get CMV infection without any consequences.
A fe may get a mono like illness. Cmv is a serious illness for the fetus, if a mother gets primary infection during pregnancy. CMV infection, new or old, can be troublesome in people with immune deficiency.
