CMV = Cytomegalo virus

This is pancreas from a fatal case of CMV infection in a premature baby. The infection itself may have caused the early delivery and death. The "owl's eye" is familiar to medical students. You can see the huge infected cell in the center of the field; the inclusion in the nucleus of this cell is millions of new viruses.
