HERNANDEZ LAFUENTE, Claudia E.  e  RODRIGUEZ AUAD, Juan Pablo. CONGENITAL INFECTION BY ZIKA VIRUS IN BOLIVIA: AN UNDERDIAGNOSED REALITY. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp. 38-44. ISSN 1726-8958.

The Zika virus has emerged as a new threat to public health, transmitted by arthropods, it can also be vertical resulting in a congenital infection; intrapartum transmission of a viraemic mother to her newborn; sexual; by transfusions and by organ transplantation. The infection may be asymptomatic; Nevertheless; pregnant women are particularly susceptible to the virus, which often spreads to the vital tissues of the developing fetus producing neurological alterations, the most characteristic being microcephaly, neurological deterioration, congenital contractures, cerebral and ocular abnormalities. We present the case of a 4-month-old girl from Caranavi with microcephaly, global developmental delay, conjunctivitis, hip dysplasia, with serology (IgM) for positive ZIKA virus, brain CT scan with periventricular calcifications, cortical atrophy and ventriculomegaly. Patient has a profound delay in psychomotor development and is in follow-up due to Infectology, Neurology, Traumatology, Physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
