Cytomegalovirus (sy·toe·MEG·a·low·vy·rus) or CMV, is a member of the herpes virus family. Coming into contact with the CMV virus is a common occurrence and is typically harmless to the general population. A CMV infection causes cold-like symptoms, such as a sore throat, fever, fatigue and swollen glands. The CMV virus can also cause severe disease in babies who were infected with CMV before birth. According to the CDC, between 50 and 80 percent of people in the United States have had a CMV infection by the time they are 40 years old.
