Abstract

© 2017 European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases We describe a case of a pregnant woman with Zika virus (ZIKV) infection and a foetus with severe brain malformations. ZIKV tested positive in amniotic fluid at 19 weeks but was negative at delivery. The newborn did not meet the case definition of congenital ZIKV syndrome because neither ZIKV RNA nor IgM antibodies were detected; however, prenatal brain lesions were confirmed after birth (Graphical Abstract).
