It's the only line in the report. I don't have it on my computer and it is not in English

This value of igG can signify a positive infection but you need to followup and get another test in two weeks to see thelevel again as rising level shows active infection. IgM antibodies might be tested as well.

if in two weeks the level will be the same it mean that the infection was in the past, right? Only rising level indicates active infection?

Thanks for the reply.

You need to get igM or PCR test as well as igG alone can not rule out CMV.
