Under a magnification of 500X, this photomicrograph of a section of pituitary gland tissue revealed the presence of cytomegalic inclusion cells, also referred to as owl-eye inclusion cells, in a case of cytomegalic inclusion disease, caused by the cytomegalovirus.
“For most healthy people who acquire cytomegalovirus (CMV) after birth, there are few symptoms and no long-term health consequences. Some people who acquire CMV infection may experience a mononucleosis-like syndrome with prolonged fever and hepatitis. Once a person becomes infected, the virus establishes lifelong latency and may reactivate intermittently. Disease from reactivation of CMV infection rarely occurs unless the person's immune system is suppressed due to therapeutic drugs or disease.”
