Congenital cytomegalovirus infection and maternal systemic lupus erythematosus: a case report.

Abstract

We describe an infant with symptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus infection, who was born to a mother with active systemic lupus erythematosus. Infection in the child resulted from reactivation of maternal cytomegalovirus infection. The mother's use of prednisone may have contributed to the reactivation. The role of maternal immunosuppression in the acquisition of congenital viral infection by the neonate is discussed.
