Tracking Clinical Outcomes of Infants Identified with Cytomegalovirus Infection in Neonatal Intensive

Objectives: To describe outcomes of infants reported with cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in California during 2010-2021. Methods: We analyzed outcomes up to 3 years of age for infants with CMV (i.e., with a positive culture or PCR), who were reported by NICUs to the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) and referred to a statewide high-risk infant follow-up (HRIF) program. HRIF criteria include birth <32 weeks of gestation, birth weight ?1500 grams, or neurological condition. Results: Of the 333 (1.9 per 1000) infants with CMV, 19 (6%) died in the neonatal period. Among survivors, 272 (87%) were referred for HRIF and 203 (75%) had ?1 visit. Among 145 infants with CMV with a second HRIF visit (median age: 13 months), 12% had bilateral blindness and 12% had hearing loss. Among 103 infants with a third HRIF visit (median age: 26 months), 5% had severe cerebral palsy. Among infants with CMV referred to HRIF, proportions with ?1 visit were lowest among infants born to mothers <20 years or of Hispanic origin. Conclusions: Linked data from CPQCC and the HRIF program in California are useful for assessing CMV disease burden and will help inform surveillance efforts.

  • Identify key variables for data collection for CMV surveillance in California
  • Examine clinical outcomes of infants with CMV infection
  • Compare follow-up rates of infants with CMV infection across different demographic groups
