Preemptive screening strategies to identify postnatal CMV diseases on the neonatal unit.

Abstract:
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common congenital infection.1 Congenital CMV (cCMV) is diagnosed if the virus is isolated in the first 3 weeks of life. It is challenging to differentiate between congenital and postnatal infection (pCMV) if the virus is detected after this time point. Retrospective diagnosis of cCMV requires the identification of the virus on the dried blood spot, a method which has been shown to be insensitive.2 Additionally, there are no internationally accepted definitions for symptomatic pCMV.
