    Abstract

    A fatal case of neonatal cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection attributed to exchange transfusion is described. The incidence of CMV transmission by exchange and other neonatal transfusion was studied, and the use of CMV antibody-free blood for these procedures was shown to be effective in preventing CMV infection in neonates.
