Many viral infections are associated with significant maternal and fetal consequences if acquired during pregnancy. In this study we wanted to clarify or remind some of the failures of laboratory techniques or managements.

Patients and methods: In this study 2049 serum samples in 4 years (2003-2006) were collected and examined with IgG and IgM ELISA techniques. These subjects were in the age range of 20-35 years. Subjects were referred to No 1 Lab of Specialized Clinics of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences.

Results: Serum samples of 2049 females were analyzed, and 1814(%88.53) seropositive, 170 (8.29%) seronegative, 65 (3.17%) current infection were detected.

Conclusion: Findings showed that there was not a suitable programmed management or a confirmed diagnostic technique in our scientific society for the prevention of some of the side effects of CMV infection in fetus of pregnant women. For these reasons we must review and prepare a new strategy for guiding our female population at least in university scientific centers.
