Cytomegalovirus Infection in One Fetus with Hypoplasia of the Pons in a Diamniotic-Dichorionic Twin Pregnancy
05 July 2018 (online)
When a cytomegalovirus infection occurs within the first 16 weeks of pregnancy, leading to intrauterine transmission, it has severe implications for the fetus. The risk of a transplacental infection in the first trimester is 40%, and 10–15% of these infected children show symptoms after birth. 80% of infected children suffer from severe impairment. We present a rare case of the infection of one fetus in a diamniotic-dichorionic twin pregnancy.
