Virus

CMV (Cytomegalovirus)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus that causes infections that often pass unnoticed. 

A cytomegalovirus infection in pregnant women can cause damage to the fetus.

This is the most common congenital fetal infection in industrialized countries.

In early pregnancy the physician will perform a blood test to check whether or not you have already had the virus.

In non-immunized pregnant women, the risk of infection is increased by the fact of having a toddler, working at a daycare center or with the elderly and/or immunosuppressed.
