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.
