Abstract

This study of 64 solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients found that peripheral blood absolute lymphocyte count of <610 and <830/μL, respectively, correlated with cytomegalovirus infection. In an era when sophisticated measures of CMV-specific T cells are emerging, we emphasize the utility of the inexpensive and readily-available absolute lymphocyte.
