National Congenital Cytomegalovirus Awareness Month
Date:6/10/2013

Greenville, NC (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

Carolina Women’s Physicians is advising their clientele that June is National Congenital Cytomegalovirus Awareness Month. Congenital Cytomegalovirus is the most common viral infection women pass along to infants (pregnancy or birth).

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates one in 750 babies are born with CMV. The virus spreads from person-to-person contact with infected saliva, blood, breast milk, urine and mucus. The virus is a member of the Herpes family. It is less likely to cause harm to the baby during pregnancy if the mother is already infected (one percent); risk very low of passing and even lower having long term health problems.

Symptoms for infants may include: small size, small brain, enlarged liver or spleen, hearing loss, vision problems, jaundice, calcium deposits in the brain and extra fluid on the brain. Different methods of diagnosis are: routine ultrasound, urine tests, tests of cells from the cervix, amniocentesis, baby’s urine, saliva and tissue after birth. Babies are treated with ganciclovir or hyperimmune gamma globulin.

A typical infection lasts between two and three weeks depending on general health. Many children may have no serious health problems, although a small minority has lifelong effects (simple hearing loss, mental retardation).

The physicians at Carolina Women’s suggest making an appointment if any patients have concerns. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.carolinawomens.com.

In addition, Carolina Women’s had 21 walkers/runners in the Mark Habitat for Humanity Walk. There was a 10k, 5k, and kids dash as part of the events. All proceeds went to the Habitat for Humanity of Pitt County.
