Abstract

Antenatal sonography in two cases demonstrated cerebral ventriculomegaly and decreased head circumference, subsequently found to be secondary to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. In both cases, the lateral ventricles were enlarged and lissencephaly was diagnosed in the neonatal period. The findings of ventriculomegaly and decreased head circumference on antenatal sonography warrant further investigation for CMV via amniotic fluid cultures or fetal blood, given the poor prognosis in infants with symptomatic infection.
