Abstract

A pregnant woman with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome had nonprimary cytomegalovirus (CMV) viremia and died of complications from Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and CMV sinusitis and pneumonitis. A boy was delivered by cesarean section at 34 weeks of gestation as the mother's health deteriorated and fetal distress developed. The infant died soon after delivery of interstitial pneumonitis and hyaline membrane disease with invasive CMV disease that affected the kidneys, adrenal glands, and placenta; the CMV strains from the mother and neonate were identical.
