Answer

Patients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease must be well hydrated.

Nutrition is an important factor because many patients are debilitated by transplant or HIV disease.

As with any patient, attention must be focused on avoiding iatrogenic infections and problems.

Patients who develop CMV disease are immunocompromised, meaning that they at greater risk for bacterial and fungal infections. If possible, the patient's level of immunosuppression should be lowered.
