Abstract: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a frequent cause of congenital infections in humans occurring in 0.4 to 2.3% of life births. Although preexisting maternal antibodies are generally protective, transplacental transmission of CMV during pregnancy may occur after recurrent maternal infection. We report severe bilateral hearing loss in an infant affected as a result of a CMV reactivation in pregnancy.
