We aimed to evaluate whether electrophysiological auditory thresholds (EATs) before 3 month of age, as assessed by the auditory brainstem responses (ABR) test and the auditory steady state responses (ASSR) test, can predict hearing outcome at 3 years of age among children born with congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection.

Treatment of congenital cytomegalovirus infection is mandatory in cases with severe systemic and/or neurological involvement. However, some patients are paucisymptomatic, with very subtle systemic man...
Data on congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in Africa are limited.
Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is well described in children with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, but limited data are available on middle ear effusion (MEE) occurrence in this populati...
Cytomegalovirus is the most common congenital infection and infectious cause of fetal anomaly and neurologic injury. However, treatment strategies for congenital CMV (cCMV) infection during pregnancy ...
There is limited data on the role of cytomegalovirus (CMV) blood quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) in the diagnostic workup of congenital CMV (cCMV) infection.
The purpose of this study is to assess the risk of congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection in newborns born to seropositive women.
Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the leading cause of non-genetic neurosensory deafness and affects 0.5 to 1% of births. Twenty to thirty per cent of children will develop dea...
CMV lesions were found in the olfactory system of children with congenital CMV infection but no study has hitherto examined the impact of congenital CMV infection on olfaction. So the inve...
The aim of this project is to determine the epidemiology of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and incidence of subsequent permanent neurological sequelae in a high HIV prevalent s...
This is a phase II, open-label trial to evaluate valganciclovir as a treatment to prevent development of SNHL in infants with asymptomatic congenital CMV infection. The trial will be condu...
Loss of sensitivity to sounds as a result of auditory stimulation, manifesting as a temporary shift in auditory threshold. The temporary threshold shift, TTS, is expressed in decibels.
Infection of the retina by cytomegalovirus characterized by retinal necrosis, hemorrhage, vessel sheathing, and retinal edema. Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a major opportunistic infection in AIDS patients and can cause blindness.
Infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, characterized by enlarged cells bearing intranuclear inclusions. Infection may be in almost any organ, but the salivary glands are the most common site in children, as are the lungs in adults.
A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily BETAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting the salivary glands, liver, spleen, lungs, eyes, and other organs, in which they produce characteristically enlarged cells with intranuclear inclusions. Infection with Cytomegalovirus is also seen as an opportunistic infection in AIDS.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...

Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
