CMV is a member of the human herpes virus-5, HHV-5 group and can be transmitted via breast milk, during organ transplantation, sexual activity or blood transfusions. It is estimated that 40-100% of people may be infected with this virus (1,2,4). CMV infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality especially in immune compromised individuals (1-3). The in situ hybridization technique offers an important advantage over immunohistochemistry, as it virtually lacks background, and allows a clean and sharp viewing of the histological preparation.
