Özet

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most common viral infection of newborns in all periods worldwide. Perinatal form of infection is usually less severe than the congenital form because of having a lower rate for serious organ involvement like central nervous system. In this article, we report a 3-month-old immunocompetent patient who was diagnosed as having perinatal CMV infection with a scar of chorioretinitis after presenting with gastroenteritis and hepatitis.
