IVIG ACQUIRED CMV
Feb 7, 2000

IS IT POSSIBLE PT. COULD ACQUIRE CMV FROM IVIG - PT. GET 40GM EVERY 2 WEEKS FOR MYASTHENIA GRAVIS

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't think so-- IVIG should be screened so that there are no infectious agents present. To be 100% sure you could obtain a CMV IgM test and see if the patient has evidence of recent CMV infection. Also-- there are many other ways to acquire CMV, and IVIG strikes me as one of the least likely.
