Hearing Loss and Cytomegalovirus.
Strauss, Melvin
Volta Review, v99 n5 p71-74 1997
Cytomegalovirus is the most common cause of congenital virally induced hearing loss. Maternal infection is most often asymptomatic as is the infection in the newborn. Hearing loss occurs in both clinically apparent infection and in the asymptomatic infection. Current methods of detection, treatment, and prevention and research efforts are presented. (Author/CR)
