Notes

The transmission can occur by the direct contact with blood, saliva, vaginal secretions, maternal milk, semen or tears. There has been no treatment for pregnant women so far. The AIDS-suffering persons can receive a very strong antiviral treatment, but it seems to lack efficiency for the cytomegalovirus.

A disorder at the neurological system, the loss of hearing, intestinal and hepatic troubles are likely to arise in the fetus of the pregnant women infected by this virus.

Complementary tests : HIV, CMV, EBV, Herpes simplex.
