Drug‐resistant cytomegalovirus (CMV) should be considered when viral shedding persists after several weeks of therapy. The problem is most likely to arise in the setting of a severely immunosuppressed host with continuing or relapsing disease. Not all treatment failure can be attributed to drug resistance. The testing of CMV isolates for drug resistance in cell culture is time‐consuming and labor‐intensive, but recent advances in understanding of the genetics of resistance have resulted in… Expand
