Abstract

In developed countries human CMV is the most frequent (1-4%) cause of congenital infections. Its role as a causative factor in the background of more and more neurodevelopmental disorders is being proven. The authors describe a 29 years old 24 weeks gestation primigravida, in whom medical pregnancy termination had to be carried out following the diagnosis of multiple brain developmental disorders (corpus callosum agenesis, internal hydrocephalus, cerebellar malformation) in the fetus. A laboratory examination followed, detecting CMV infection of the fetus. Based on this case, the authors draw attention to congenital CMV-infection-related brain malformations, and to the pre- and postnatal diagnostic possibilities and relevance of the infection.
