• A 3-year-old girl with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been followed up since birth. Hemiatrophy and hemiparesis occurred at 9 months of age. These unusual sequels of congenital CMV infection should encourage physicians to do longitudinal studies on infants with congenital CMV infection, as well as to examine children with hemiatrophy and hemiparesis for CMV infection.
