Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection of the fetus has been associated with congenital deafness or hearing loss. This association has previously been based on clinical or pathological studies. We report an infant who died with the congenital CMV syndrome in which CMV was isolated from the perilymph of the inner ear providing additional evidence that this virus can infect the labyrinth.
