In brief: Depends
CMV (cytomegalovirus) infection in children and young adults with intact immune system is usually a trivial infection.
However, pregnant mother becomes infected the first time, the virus infects her fetus. Sensorineural hearing loss and developmental delay are common sequelae following congenital CMV infection.
