|CMV culture/DNA reliability and HIV infection
Feb 20, 2002
Are there difficulties with accurate diagnosis of CMV through culture and PCR in people infected with HIV? Would cultures show false negative in early stages of infection? Thank you for your help.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
CMV laboratory tests are reliable in HIV+s.
