In brief: Probably

I am not sure, however, if you mean CMV colitis in unborn child or CMV colitis in mother of such child.
One way or the other CMV infection has been known to be one of the causes of intrauterine fetal disease. It can pass from mother to fetus, so if the fetus has colitis, that means he is infected and may have other organ damage. If mother has it, she can pass it to her baby.
