The study was aimed to estimate the role and prevalence rates of genotypes, haplotypes, and alleles, located within the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of interleukin (IL) 1A, IL1B, and IL6 genes, in the occurrence and development of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection among pregnant women. A research was conducted in 129 pregnant women, out of whom, 65 were HCMV infected and 64 were age-matched control uninfected individuals. HCMV DNA was quantitated for UL55 gene by the real-time Q PCR in the body fluids...

BACKGROUND: Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is responsible for the most common intrauterine infections, which may be acquired congenitally from infected pregnant woman to fetus. The research was aimed to estimate the role of three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located in TLR2 gene, and the common contribution of TLR2, and previously studied TLR4 and TLR9 SNPs, to the occurrence of congenital HCMV infection in fetuses and newborns. METHODS: The study was performed in 20 Polish fetuses and newborns, congenitally infected with HCMV, and in 31 uninfected controls, as well as with participation of pregnant women, the mothers of 16 infected and 14 uninfected offsprings...

BACKGROUND: Some single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP), located in Toll-like receptor (TLR) genes, were reported to be associated with human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infections. The study was aimed to assess the correlation of SNPs at TLR4 and TLR9 genes with the occurrence of congenital cytomegaly, based on available samples. METHODS: Reported case-control study included both HCMV infected and non-infected fetuses and newborns. The specimens were classified to the molecular analyses, based on serological features of the recent infection and HCMV DNAemia in body fluids...

The aim is to present a rare case of solitary malformation in the form of a congenital optic disc cyst concomitant with the persistent hyaloid artery. The intrabulbar congenital cyst of the optic disc partially covering the medial part of the disc was found in a 3-month old infant. B-San ultrasound confirmed the presence of the intrabulbar heterogeneous mass (7.0 x 2.5 x 5.4 mm) within the vitreous cavity and the concomitant persistent hyaloid artery was shown in Colour Doppler Imaging. The axial length of the involved eye was shorter than of the healthy one (16...

UNLABELLED: Congenital cytomegaly is caused by intrauterine mother-to-fetus HCMV transmission and constitutes the most common vertical infection. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to analyze the viremia level in maternal blood and its influence on the course and duration of pregnancy as well as newborn condition. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The material included blood samples collected from 117 pregnant women with serological features of HCMV infection and from 29 neonates hospitalized at DFMMG in Lodz between 1999 and 2009...

A report on dichorionic/diamniotic pregnancy in which only one, female, fetus was infected with cytomegalovirus and presented with severe congenital diseases at birth. Infection of the fetus occurred after recurrent maternal infection. The second, male, fetus did not have CMV infection. The cesarean section was performed at the 38th week of gestation. The birth weight of the infected girl was 1680g, the main symptoms, beside dystrophy, concerned the central nervous system: microcephaly, brain atrophy, hydrocephalus, corpus callosum agenesis...

Described in this article is the massive enlargement of both adrenal glands in 3 newborns-2 girls and 1 boy. Two had hemihypertrophy and other congenital abnormalities but no identified genetic mutation; the third had genetically proven Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. Two had severe Cushing syndrome, the third had hypercortisolemia but no clinical Cushing syndrome. Bilateral adrenalectomy cured Cushing syndrome in the 2 with severe symptoms; total adrenal weight in these patients was 44 and 53 g, respectively...

Adrenocortical cytomegaly (AC) is a relatively uncommon phenomenon but tends to occur in certain situations, including specific congenital anomalies and hydrops due to maternal-fetal Rhesus incompatibility. Because the pathology in the latter condition does not differ greatly from hemoglobin (Hb) Bart hydrops fetalis, we performed a retrospective review of fetal and perinatal autopsy cases with Hb Bart to determine the prevalence of AC in that condition. Over a 10-year period (2001-2010) at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, there were 16 hydropic cases confirmed to have Hb Bart...

INTRODUCTION: In 1963 Beckwith presented a report on the first patient with extreme cytomegaly of adrenal cortex, hyperplasia of kidneys and pancreas and Leydig cell hyperplasia. Wiedemann completed description of the new syndrome by adding umbilical hernia and macroglossia. The diagnosis is made based on the clinical signs of omphalocele or some other umbilical deformity, macroglossia, congenital asymmetry, visceromegaly (liver, pancreas, and kidneys). CASE OUTLINE: A 16-month-old male child was admitted for examination because of macroglossia...

Authors presented of a cytomegalovirus characteristics, its existing in human population and rare clinical presentation in immunocompetent persons (including pregnant women) after primary infection. The vertical transmission from mother to the fetus and the mode of acquisition of infection in perinatal period as well as symptoms of congenital cytomegaly together with late sequelae are also under discussion. Authors stressed, that advances in improvements in the diagnosis of maternal, fetal and newborn infection are not outpaced with improvements in the antiviral treatment of fetuses and infants, but improvement or stabilization of hearing loss after ganciclovir therapy is observed...

We retrospectively analyzed 58 autopsy cases of cerebral palsy which were clinically diagnosed at the Aichi Prefecture Colony Hospital. Most of the cases of cerebral palsy had brainweights that were 60-70% of the normal brainweight for their ages. However, approximately 20% of the brains were not small, especially in cases over 20 years of age. The brains of cerebral palsy cases showed wide morphological variation, and were classified into thinned cerebral mantle type (10 cases), hydrocephalus type (three cases) and microgyria-pachygyria type (45 cases)...

Large congenital arteriovenous malformations (AVM) may result in heart failure and death. We are reporting such combination with the AVM localized to the right thoracobrachial region. Remarkable postmortem findings included right renal and adrenal hemihyperplasia; the right adrenal fetal cortex presenting cytomegaly, endocrine pancreas hyperplasia, and heterotopic adrenal cortex with cytomegaly in the left lateral ventricle choroids plexus. The combination appears to be unique. The only previously reported example of adrenal cortex in the choroid plexus presented several features strongly suggestive of Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome...

A broad variety of microorganisms are capable of causing fetal infections. Among viral agents prominent are the human cytomegaly virus (HCMV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), human immundeficiency virus (HIV), varicella, herpes zooster, rubella, parvovirus B19, measles and the hepatitis B and C viruses. Protozoa such as toxoplasma and spirocheta pallida, causing congenital syphilis are equally important. Bacterial infections are responsible for in uterus aquired listeriosis, tuberculosis, and group B streptococcus infections...
