A previous isolation of a human cytomegalovirus (CMV) from fibroblasts derived from intact skin of a Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease patient has prompted examination of six blind-coded cultured human skin lines by CMV DNA hybridization. The detection of CMV genome equivalents in three of the lines suggests that, in some cases, intact human skin may be a site of CMV latency.
