Further examination shows quantitative PCR beyond the normal range for CMV-DNA. Other examination showed leukocytosis, anaemia, thrombocytopenia, prolonged hemostatic function, proteinuria, hemoglobinuria, bilirubinuria, high level of procalcitonin, hypo-albumin, elevated liver function, elevated direct, indirect, and total bilirubin, high level of alkali phosphatase and gamma GT and low level of total protein and globulin. The patient was diagnosed with congenital CMV infection with liver failure, hypo-albumin and prolonged hemostatic function. The patient was planned to treat with intravenous ganciclovir.
