In brief: Not sure

There has been one case of chorioretinal scarring secondary to the congenital infection and there was a study looking at effects on the fetus of congenital wnv.
Little has been found it terms of delitierious effects. I would make sure your OB knows you may be infected so that further testing and closer follow-up with u/s can be done.
