CDC recommends Zika testing for at-risk newborn infants

NCC Practice Resource (Powered by SmartBrief) | Feb 01, 2016

The CDC issued new guidance recommending newborns undergo testing for Zika virus infection if their mothers tested positive or inconclusive for the virus, or have reported symptoms of the disease while living abroad in an affected region or within two weeks of travel to such a region. "Even if your child doesn't have calcifications or microcephaly, it's important that a baby born to a mother infected during pregnancy be tested for other complications," said Dr. H. Cody Meissner, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics' committee on infectious diseases. "There can be neurological damage, or hearing or visual abnormalities."
