CMV pneumonia is most often seen in severely immunocompromised patients.

It is often isolated in patients with AIDS following bronchoalveolar lavage, though it only occasionally causes pneumonia. It is more significant however, in transplant patients and those who are iatrogenically immunosuppressed when it may cause a fatal pneumonitis.
