Helping Children with Congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

When a baby is born with cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, it is called congenital CMV infection. About 1 out of every 200 babies are born with congenital CMV infection. Women can pass CMV to their baby during pregnancy.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only about 1 in 5 babies with congenital CMV infection will be sick from the virus or will have long-term health problems, but those problems can include hearing loss, vision loss, intellectual disability, muscular weakness, and even seizures.

Find out more about the two-article CDC resource (available in English and Spanish) and connect with its website devoted to CMV.
