Congenital Zika Syndrome findings in Pediatric Ophthalmology

Mar 05, 2018



 

Mark Silverberg, MD, shares the findings of research published in Jaapos, where the evaluations of 70 infants from a Brazilian eye clinic had microcephaly from the Zika virus also had ocular abnormalities.  These abnormalities occurred in 36% of the infants, which included early-onset strabismus, optic nerve pallor, macular chorioretinal atrophy, and nystagmus with low visual acuity.

These are all associated with congenital Zika syndrome.
