MDInfectious Diseases in Clinical Practice: May 2012 - Volume 20 - Issue 3 - p 180–181 doi: 10.1097/IPC.0b013e3182424320 Review Articles Abstract Author Information Abstract: We report a newborn with congenital dengue infection and cardiomyopathy. Congenital dengue is known to occur owing to vertical transmission of the virus from an infected mother to her baby through the placenta. Dengue-related cardiomyopathy has been reported previously. This is arguably the first time cardiomyopathy is being reported in the context of congenital dengue. A systematic review of literature on congenital dengue as cited in Pubmed is also presented.
