Lurie Children's Hospital: Improving Awareness and the Timely Diagnosis of cCMV in Illinois

Our goal is to be able to provide a rapid diagnosis for those newborns who fail their hearing screens in the newborn nursery, when the hearing loss is attributable to infection with CMV during pregnancy.  Recent research has revealed treatment options for those newborns found to have hearing loss from congenital CMV, to optimize hearing outcomes and neurodevelopment.
