Abstract

Standard contagious isolation procedures were used for 83 patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia and serologic and/or cultural evidence of cytomegalovirus infection. The infection rate, as determined serologically, for 9 months before and 13 months during isolation procedures was not decreased. Since the techniques employed were not helpful in preventing infection with cytomegalovirus in the immunosuppressed host, they have been discontinued at this hospital.
