CMV is most commonly transmitted by young children at home or work. Those infected with CMV often show no signs or symptoms, others may have mild flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat or fatigue. When CMV occurs during pregnancy the baby can become infected before birth (congenital CMV) and this may cause damage to the brain, eyes and or inner ears. Children born with congenital CMV may develop permanent medical conditions and disabilities such as deafness, blindness, cerebral palsy, other mental and physical disabilities, seizures and in some cases it may result in death.
