In brief: Prenatal CMV

When CMV seronegative mothers contract primary CMV infection during pregnancy, roughly 50% will transmit to the infection to the fetus.
About 25% of the infected fetuses are then born with symptoms, which may include pneumonia, gastrointestinal, retinal and neurological disease.
