Congenital CMV Infection – PediaCast CME 045

Show Notes / Continuing Medical Education Information

DESCRIPTION
Dr Pablo Sanchez visits the studio as we explore congenital CMV infection. This condition is a leading cause of hearing loss. Early treatment might preserve hearing, but few states test when newborns fail to pass their hearing screen. We’ll cover lots more detail, including the cause, presentation, diagnosis, management and prevention of this disease. We hope you can join us!
