Zika and Microcephaly. Microcephaly is a birth defect in which a baby’s head is smaller than expected when compared to babies of the same sex and age. Babies with microcephaly often have smaller brains that might not have developed properly.

Zika virus infection during pregnancy is a cause of microcephaly. During pregnancy, a baby’s head grows because the baby’s brain grows. The Zika Birth Defects Surveillance system monitored birth defects potentially related to Zika virus infection, including. Brain abnormalities. Microcephaly.

Eye defects. Hearing loss. Other problems associated with damage to the brain that affects the. Nerves.

Muscles. A distinct pattern of birth defects and disabilities, called congenital Zika syndrome external icon, has been found with Zika virus infection during pregnancy. Although many of the features seen as part of congenital Zika syndrome can be caused by other infections during pregnancy, the five features listed below are rarely seen with other infections or are unique to congenital Zika syndrom. TUESDAY, Feb.

9, 2016 (HealthDay News) The thousands of babies born in Brazil with abnormally small heads and brains believed to be caused by infection in the womb with the Zika virus GENEVA/LONDON (Reuters) The World Health Organization on Monday declared the mosquito-borne Zika virus an international public health emergency due to its link to thousands of birth defects in. For the study, researchers analyzed data from 15 states and territories in 2016, and found that about three of every 1,000 newborns had a birth defect possibly caused by Zika infection.

W hen scientists discovered that the Zika virus was causing birth defects, it seemed to catch the world off guard.The mosquito-borne virus could slip from mother to. Zika Birth Defects Surveillance finds infants with birth defects by using a standard case definition that allows health departments across the country to collect infants’ medical information in. Researchers have found Zika virus RNA in the brains of infants born with microcephaly in the past few months in Brazil, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an indication.

Zika virus infection (Zika) during pregnancy can cause damage to the brain, microcephaly, and congenital Zika syndrome, a pattern of conditions in the baby that includes brain abnormalities, eye defects, hearing loss, and limb defects.

The long-term consequences of birth defects and brain damage to babies born with Zika-related birth defects is anticipated to be devastating, with over 1700 cases of microcephaly reported in Northeastern Brazil alone.

  • This is not Zika this is genetic disposition of microcephalic, Zika is not a genome disposition it is a virus that does not cause brain damage or cranial damage.

  • Remember these tragic horror stories about the Zika babies the next time the pro-life groups want to ban abortions due to a fetus’s birth defects.

  • They should automatically terminate these babies. They are USELESS. Most of them can’t even swallow. They spend their whole day catering to these kids. It’s horrific! No life! They need life long assistance! No one should live this way! It’s abuse to make them!
