CORTES, Jorge Alberto et al. Colombian consensus for stratification, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cytomegalovirus infection in adults patients with renal transplant. Infect. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.4, pp.250-264. ISSN 0123-9392.

Cytomegalovirus is a primary cause of infection and illness in patients who have had renal transplantation, with a significant impact on morbidity, mortality and economic costs. However, there is no standardized clinical practice in transplant centers in Colombia, and it is important to have guidelines to stratify, diagnose, treat and prevent cytomegalovirus infection and disease. Through ADAPTE's methodology for the quality evaluation and adaptation of clinical practice guidelines in our setting, a multidisciplinary group carried out a systematic review of the medical literature, selecting international guidelines that were evaluated with the AGREE-II instrument in terms of quality. With each selected guideline, an evidence table was constructed and the GRADE strategy was performed to develop recommendations. Recommendations related to stratification, laboratory diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infections and disease caused by cytomegalovirus in adult transplant patients were developed.
