Abstract: Coinfection with cytomegalovirus (CMV) may be involved in cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients. We found that higher level of CMV immunoglobulin G (IgG) was independently associated with an increased risk of coronary artery calcium and higher intima-media thickness in HIV-infected patients but not in healthy controls after adjustment for other cardiovascular risk factors and levels of herpes viridae IgG.
