Resumen

  • All infants born to mothers who have laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection during pregnancy should receive comprehensive physical exam, neurologic assessment, head ultrasound, standard newborn hearing assessment, and Zika virus testing.
  • Testing is recommended for infants born to mothers who have laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection during pregnancy and for infants who have abnormal clinical findings suggestive of congenital Zika syndrome and a maternal epidemiologic link suggesting possible exposure during pregnancy, regardless of maternal test results.
  • A Zika virus RNA NAT test should be performed on both infant serum and urine, and Zika virus immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibody should be performed on infant serum. Testing should be performed on specimens collected from infants within 2 days after birth; however, testing specimens collected within the first few weeks to months after birth may still be useful in the evaluation for possible congenital Zika virus infection, especially among infants born in areas without risk of Zika.
  • Las directrices para la realización de pruebas y el manejo clínico de bebés y niños con infección postnatal por el virus del Zika están en consonancia con las recomendaciones para las pruebas y el manejo clínico de adultos.
  • Zika testing is recommended during the first 2 weeks after symptom onset to diagnose postnatal Zika virus infection. Las pruebas serológicas se recomiendan de 2 a 12 semanas después de la aparición de los síntomas.
