CMV Fact Sheet for Pregnant Women and Parents CD

  1. You can pass CMV to your baby If you are pregnant and have CMV, the virus in your blood can cross through your placenta and infect your developing baby. This is more likely to happen if you have a frst-time CMV infection while pregnant but can also happen if you have a subsequent infection during pregnancy. You are not likely to be tested for CMV
  2. The objectives of this guideline are: To improve perinatal care providers' awareness of the consequences of maternal CMV infection for the fetus and the infant; To emphasize the importance of educating patients about how to prevent CMV acquisition during pregnancy To raise perinatal care providers' awareness of new developments in CMV screening.
  3. CMV is a common viral infection, especially among young children. Congenital CMV occurs when the infection is passed across the placenta from a pregnant woman to her developing baby. Some babies with congenital CMV infection show signs of disability at birth, while others are born healthy
  4. Fetal congenital CMV infections Amniocentesis is the best option as a prenatal diagnostic tool to detect fetal congenital CMV infection, performed >21 weeks of gestation and >6 weeks from maternal infection (GRADE 1C
  5. Fortunately, these two mechanisms of transmission are extremely unlikely to cause any injury to the baby. However, when a pregnant woman develops primary CMV infection in the first half of pregnancy, the risk of transplacental infection is approximately 40%. Of these babies, 5 to 15% are acutely symptomatic at birth
  6. CMV is the most common congenital viral infection, with birth prevalence of 0.48 to 1.30 percent in recent decades [ 1-5 ]. Most infants with congenital CMV infection are asymptomatic, but approximately 10 to 15 percent of infected infants experience symptomatic infection, which can be severe and life-threatening

Maternal CMV and infant congenital CMV also have been associated with increased risk of HIV perinatal transmission in pregnant women with HIV who have not received antenatal ART. 85 In women diagnosed with primary CMV infection in pregnancy, the fetus should be monitored by periodic ultrasound after 20 weeks gestation (CIII) PCR on amniotic fluid for CMV is more sensitive after 21 weeks' gestation. 3. Remember that 75% of congenital CMV infections may be due to reactivation of old infection, or reinfection with a new strain of CMV, so evidence of old infection does not rule out the possibility of fetal CMV.

Around 10-15% of neonates with congenital CMV will be symptomatic at birth, with a similar percentage developing problems later in childhood. This Scientific Impact Paper summarises the issues around screening, diagnosis and treatment of CMV in pregnancy, utilising the best available evidence and highlighting recent advances during pregnancy if clinically indicated, but does not remove the need to follow recommended hygiene measures.

Infection during one pregnancy does not increase the risk for subsequent pregnancies. Women who have experienced a primary CMV infection during. Pre-existing maternal antibody to CMV is the most important protective factor against congenital CMV infection, but does not prevent reactivation or reinfection with new viral strains.
