laboratory values of cytomegalovirus IgG and IgM antibodies of all donors and recipients presented from 2006 to 2013 to National Institute of Kidney diseases Sheikh Zayed Hospital Lahore Pakistan.

Results:  Total no. of patients were 410 (205 donors and 205 recipients). Among recipients 169 (82%) were male and 36 (18%) female while among donors 125 (60%) were male and 80(40%) female. Total 05 (2.4 %) recipients were CMV IgG negative and 03 (1.4%) CMV IgM positive. Out of two hundred five recipients 200 (98%) were IgG positive and 202(99%) were IgM negative. All the donors were CMV IgM negative and CMV IgG positive.
