This symposium will help you improve your skills in managing cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in transplant patients, including how to identify and treat refractory or drug-resistant CMV. Join our expert panel as they discuss CMV treatment guidelines after solid organ transplant (SOT) or hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) and new therapy for refractory or drug-resistant CMV. Challenging real-world patient cases in CMV after transplantation will be presented, offering you an opportunity to test your clinical skills and learn from the experts. Do not miss it!
