The purpose of this educational exhibit is to educate the radiologist regarding the fetal and postnatal imaging findings of Zika Virus (ZikV) in order to include congenital ZikV in the differential diagnosis when the maternal history and geography are compatible. We present a patient who emigrated from Central America during her third trimester of pregnancy with maternal ZikV. Read More

Central nervous system (CNS) infections acquired in-utero are a significant cause of fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Early detection is crucial for timely therapy, prognostication, and peripartum planning. Fetal imaging plays an important role in diagnosing CNS infection and determining the extent of involvement. It has been of particular diagnostic importance with the current outbreak of Zika virus, a neurotropic virus that can result in severe CNS anomalies. An imaging review of commonly encountered congenital infections, including Zika virus, will be presented, with an emphasis on fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Read More
