Congenital Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis -- New York

January 2011
MMWR: Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report;1/14/2011, Vol. 60 Issue 1, p16
The article highlights a case of a congenital lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) in an infant in upstate New York. LCMV is an arena-virus carried by domestic house mice as well as laboratory and pet rodents. The symptoms of LCMV infections in humans are mentioned. The consequences of a mother-to-child transmission of LCMV are cited.
