The known strains of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) represent genotypic variants of a single species, and HCMV genotypic variability has been studied in order to reveal correlations between different disease patterns and the presence of certain HCMV genotypes, either as single or as multiple infections. The methods used for the detection of HCMV genotypes have not always been sophisticated enough to achieve complete comprehensiveness, mainly because only one genotype is usually detected in a certain specimen,...
