Conclusions

In immunocompetent individuals, a symptomatic CMV primary infection or reinfection should be considered as part of the differential diagnosis when patients present with pericardial effusion and serositis. Symptomatic therapy is indicated for immunocompetent patients with acute CMV disease. In the literature, recommendations concerning an antiviral therapy regimen are still being discussed.
