Abstract

Abstract:

Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection can cause significant morbidity and mortality in the newborn period. Postnatally acquired CMV infection has been thought to carry much less morbidity. We report 5 cases of severe morbidity and mortality in very low birth weight infants with postnatally acquired, breast milk associated CMV infection.
