Abstract
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common viral cause of intrauterine infection, and it is the major infectious factor known to be associated with congenital mental retardation and deafness. We had experienced two cases of congenital cytomegalovirus infection at our department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Chosun University School of Medicine. In both cases, prenatal ultrasonography was abnormal and suggested intrauterine infection and their outcome were different. We present these cases with brief literatures.
