Abortion is one of the commonest reasons for acute presentation to gynaecologists, recurrent spontaneous abortion
due to maternal infections transmissible in uterus at various stage of gestation can be caused by a wide array of
organisms including cytomegalovirus.This study included(60) patients (females) aborted with cytomegalovirus
and (60) negative control (females) aborted without cytomegalovirus and (60) positive control (healthy
women).The study was designed to determine and compare the levels of (NO, Fe, Cu)in study groups and evaluate
of the relationship between nitric oxide and (Cu, Fe) instudy groups.The results show a significant increase in
levels ofserum NO in patient group in comparing withnegative control groupand positive control group(P > 0.05),
asignificant increase in levels of serum Cu in negative control group in comparing with patient group and positive
control group(P > 0.05)and significant decrease in levelsof serum Fe levels in patient groupin comparison with
negativecontrol group and positive control group. (P > 0.05).The results of this studyshowdisorder in levels of(NO,
Fe, Cu)patients group (females) aborted with cytomegalovirus.
