Cytomegalovirus belongs to the family herpesviridae, it is important cause of abortion, mental retardation and fetal death. This study was conducted to determine the occurrence of IgM and IgG antibodies in sera and CMV antigens in saliva in women with recurrent abortion and the effect of the virus on some haematological criteria in those women. It is concluded that IgG titre is higher in women who were between 36-40 years of age than other ages. After 40 years fetal death increased especially in women with positive IgG. Furthermore, the virus affect haematological criteria causing anemia and leucopenia.
