Abstract : Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a ubiquitous pathogen that infects the majority of human population and cause severe morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised individuals. Reactivation of the virus is seen during periods of down-regulation of the immune system, such as drug treatment and illness-related stress, or co-infection with other pathogens. This study was conducted to assess the prevalence of CMV- antibodies in pregnant women with high risk of abortion. The study included 185 cases undergone to abortion, serological tests for HCMV IgG and HCMV IgM were done by ELISA. (69%) were positive for HCMV-IgG, while 21% were positive for HCMV-IgM. Seroprevalence of HCMV in the studied women showed a signification correlation between CMV infection and number of abortion.
